Have you seen our newsletter? Each month we send out a newsletter that lets our readers know about new releases, events and goings on in the Monsoon Books world. You can look at our latest one here. We highlight the new books that we are publishing this month and also suggest a few summer reads that you may like to take away with you. Don’t forget that when you purchase a paperback from our website directly, then you are instantly entitled to the eBook too! All DRM free as well.
We would like to point out our two new releases this month: A Yellow House and Operation Blind-Spot. Both are fantastic reads and inspired by real life situations but that is probably the only things they have in common! A Yellow House by Karien van Ditzhuijzen is a passionate and powerful debut that explores the plight of domestic maids in Singapore and the exploitation of migrant workers by their employers. It could be described as a modern day version of The Help set in Singapore. The author lends authenticity to the writing as she works with domestic maids at the charity Home.
Whereas Operation Blind-Spot by JP Cross is must read for any military history and adventure reader. Written with absolute authority and candour, his book will give readers an insight into what it really was like at a pivotal moment in history. As John le Carré says about the author: “Nobody is better qualified to tell this story of the Gurkhas’ deadly jungle battles against communist insurgency in 1950s Malaya.”
We hope that you find time to have a look at the books, join up for the newsletter and have a fantastic summer!
