PAMLA member Susan Morgan has two exciting announcements. First, her cultural biography, Bombay Anna: The Real Story and Remarkable Adventures of the King and I Governess (University of California Press, 2008), was selected by the American Library Association (ALA) for their list of “The Best of the Best from the University Presses” for 2009.

Additionally, a second, expanded and significantly revised, edition of Bombay Anna is being published by Silkworm Books in Thailand in January 2010. Congratulations Susan!
