Event Details

At the start of Ed Lin's Ghost Month, a young man finds that his ex-girlfriend has been murdered. Turns out she was working as a "betel nut beauty": one of the scantily-clad women who stand by roadsides selling the snacks to truck drivers.

AAWW is setting the scene for Lin's book at the start of ghost month (August), with the quintessential Taiwanese party: the night market. Baos, rolls, and bubble teas abundant, not to mention books.

Ed Lin is the first author to win three Asian American Literary Awards, for Waylaid, This Is a Bust and Snakes Can’t RunGhost Month is the product of extensive research and interviews with people of all walks in Taiwanese life, from expats to foreign-born returnees to members of organized crime. Publishers Weekly awarded Ghost Month a starred review, praising the "darkly comic thriller." Lin, who is of Taiwanese and Chinese descent, lives in Brooklyn with his wife, actress Cindy Cheung, and son.
