It was an exciting event on Sunday May 15th when “The House of Wives” by Simon Choa-Johnston launched in South Surrey. And just as exciting for Simon, I’m sure, was the fact that the book made the Globe and Mail best-seller list the day before!
The picture at left doesn’t really do Simon Johnston justice, but it does show crucial parts of authorship: signing a book, and a happy customer, who has his wallet out.
The story prominently features three of Simon’s ancestors: a rich Hong Kong merchant, and both his (simultaneous) wives. Early reviews point to this being a great read. I’m looking forward to it.
