Geoff Ryman's Cambodian Tales, Part 2

In celebration of award-winning novelist Geoff Ryman's latest US release The King's Last Song (Small Beer Press), we're running a series of exclusive short essays from the author.

Ryman lives in the United Kingdom, is currently teaching in San Diego, and has Canadian citizenship. As he told Locus in an earlier interview, "Canada spends an inordinate amount of time worrying about its national identity, which is a really boring topic. I got kind of narked because for some time they would never call me a Canadian writer, though I carry a Canadian passport and I feel Canadian. It's because I've lived out of the country. You could never have a film called A Canadian in Paris.”

Here's Part II of Ryman's essay on his Cambodian experiences. Check out all of Ryman's fiction available through Amazon.
