On Saturday 19 (5.30 pm for 6 pm) at Monument Books (Norodom Blvd, near St 240), Australian writer Laura Jean McKay hosts the Phnom Penh launch of her recently published book Holiday in Cambodia, a collection of many short pieces of fiction arising from her experiences in Cambodia over a period of several years. This is not a travel journal, but rather a series of extended vignettes maintaining western visitors and cultures as the other, the strange. And it’s true: Jello Biafra ordered a couple of copies.
