Just came back from the Philippine Embassy in London where I attended the book launch of the Philippine edition of Tall Story by Candy Gourlay.
Below is a review of the book from the Sunday Times.
Sunday Times 100 Best Titles for Summer: Candy Gourlays debut novel Tall Story is a feel good tale about basketball mad Londoner Andi and her 8ft tall Filipino half brother Bernardo, who is reunited with his mother and sister after 16 years of waiting for the necessary papers. Making use of Philippine superstitions and legends, the novel brings magic to a down-home story of earthquakes and sibling love.

Have just started reading the book. Many congratulations to Candy and the team for the great night!
Maraming salamat po
