In this special series of Lets Talk Reading, we brought together two Bhutanese writers, Gopilal Acharya and Chador Wangmo, to talk about their books and on writing.
Gopilal Acharya is the author of Bhutanese Folk Tales (from the east and the south) and Dancing to Death (an anthology of poems). His debut novel, With a Stone in My Heart, was longlisted for the 2009 Man Asian Literary Prize. His poems have appeared in a number of international anthologies including The Quest, Blossoms and Rustling Breeze.
Chador Wangmo is author of nine books for children, including two books in Dzongkha. Her maiden novel is titled La Ama… A mother’s call. Her second novel, Kyetse, was launched recently.
