Crystal-Lee Quibell speaks with author, Yangsze Choo on how her debut novel, The Ghost Bride, became a NYT best seller.
Malaysian author Yangsze Choo’s 2013 debut novel, The Ghost Bride, was Oprah.com’s Book of the Week and a New York Times bestseller. Set in 1890s colonial Malaya and the elaborate Chinese afterlife, with its ghost cities and burned paper offerings, it’s about a young Chinese woman who receives a marriage proposal from a dead man. After graduating from Harvard University, she worked in various corporate jobs and carried a briefcase before writing her first novel. Yangsze eats and reads too much and can often be found doing both at her blog http://yschoo.com

Mercedes wunderkind and two-time champion Lewis Hamilton took his second pole position in the second race of the season. Former Red Bull champion Sebastian Vettel, in his first season driving for Ferrari, broke-up the Mercedes 1-2 front row by taking second away from fellow German, Nico Rosberg. A very disappointed Nico Rosberg, will be starting in third position. Red Bulls, Daniel Ricciardo and Daniil Kvyat qualified 4th and 5th respectively. For the first time in 54-years, a teenager, Max Verstappen, qualified in the top ten in Formula One Grand Prix qualifying. Verstappen, driving for Toro Rosso, and will be starting, sixth, on Sunday. At age 17, Verstappen is the youngest driver in Formula One. Thunderstorms and torrential rains stopped any momentum Ferrari driver Kimi Raikkonen may have had, scoring in the top ten. He will start in eleventh, position. The Sepang crowd welcomed back an injured Fernando Alonso and Valtteri Bottas after both drivers suffered injuries doing what the love, racing. With dynamics on the track changing, Sunday's race should be spectacular.
