1 am on the wrong side of town
lose their echoes
down hard streets
My good friend Phuoc-Tan, who you will know from previous posts and his Duo blog, has released his first book of poetry called Lights out & other poems – Wake up! series Vol. 1 You can download it free at Lulu.
Phuoc-Tan came to the UK as a Vietnamese "boat person" and became a medical doctor . . . a Histopathology Specialist to be exact. He is now 33 years old and we are hoping that one day he will make good [he he he . . hi PT!] Phuoc-Tan used to live with us in London, right before he married a girl from our youth group in Australia - Maggie Blick - who is an award winning novelist and also a dear friend of our family and supporter of our adventures. I took some funky video of their wedding but still haven't found the time to edit it into a little movie - my apologies!
So Phuoc-Tan - congratulations on your fabulous book! Don't give up your day job just yet, but please keep on writing. We look forward to the next installment.
