I am a novelist, ethnographer, critic, curator and teacher. I'm the author of The Invisible Crowd (HarperCollins, 2017) and Saffron Shadows and Salvaged Scripts: Literary Life in Myanmar Under Censorship and in Transition (Columbia University Press, 2015). My PhD research explored the culture of live literature events. I used to work as a human rights barrister and a busker.
