Tan Twang Eng’s latest novel is about Somerset Maugham’s visit to British Malaya. The House of Doors is a ‘masterful novel of public morality and private truth a century ago. Based on real events, it is a drama of love and betrayal under the shadow of Empire.’ Twan was born in Penang, Malaysia. His first novel, The Gift of Rain, was
longlisted for the 2007 Booker Prize and his second novel, The Garden of Evening Mists, won the Walter Scott Prize for Historical Fiction and was adapted into an award-winning film. His books have been translated into more than 20 languages.
