Introducing Mark Staniforth (Shadow Man Asian Literary Prize 2011)

As announced earlier this week, the Shadow Man Asian Literary Prize review team has a new member, Mark Staniforth, a writer and sports journalist from North Yorkshire, England, blogs at Eleutherophobia, and when I stumbled across his reviews of the Man Asian Literary Prize longlist, I knew we wanted him on the team.

So far, Mark has reviewed

The Wandering Falcon by Jamil Ahmad

The Colonel by Mahmoud Dowlatabadi

The Folded Earth by Anuradha Roy

The Sly Company of Those Who Care by Rahul Bhattachariya

Dream of Ding Village by Yan Lianke

and when you visit you will see why he is such an asset to our team!

I’m currently reading and enjoying my first Murakami, 1Q84 (reviewed already on Matt’s blog) and am anxiously awaiting the arrival of Rebirth, which is apparently on its way from India! That makes four to read before the shortlist comes out on January 10th.  Can I do it?  We’ll see, eh?
