Read full description of the books:
First published to acclaim in Australia, "Look Who's Morphing" by Asian Australian writer Tom Cho is a funny, fantastical, often outlandish collection of stories firmly grounded in popular culture. Often with his family, the book's central character undergoes a series of startling physical transformations, shape-shifting through figures drawn from film and television, music and books, porn flicks and comics. He is Godzilla, a Muppet, a gay white male stud, and Whitney Houston's bodyguard; the Fonz, a robot, the von Trapp family's caretaker, a Ford Bronco 4x4 and in the book's lavish climax, a one-hundred-foot-tall guitar-wielding rock star performing for an adoring troupe of fans in Tokyo.
Throughout the stories, there is a pervasive questioning of the nature of identity, whether cultural, racial, sexual, gender, or all of the above, and the way it is constructed in a world filled with the white noise of pop culture. "Look Who's Morphing" is a stylish, highly entertaining literary debut in which nothing not even one's body can be taken for granted.
Tom Cho is a trans writer who began writing fiction in his mid teens in Australia, where he was influenced by the YA series Sweet Valley High. His stories have appeared in publications in Australia and elsewhere, and he has performed at events and festivals around the world, including in the award-winning show "Hello Kitty," which combines literature with power ballads. "Look Who's Morphing" is his first book.

Read information about the authorI write fiction. I perform my words onstage. Sometimes, I curate and produce arts projects.
Born and raised in Melbourne, Australia, I’ve lately been spending time overseas writing my novel, doing artist residencies and giving readings. I also have a parallel career as a freelance writer, analyst and editor.
My first full-length book, Look Who’s Morphing, was published in Australia and New Zealand by Giramondo Publishing in 2009 and has now been released in North America and Europe by Arsenal Pulp Press. This collection of fictions was shortlisted for three literary awards, including the 2010 Commonwealth Writers’ Prize for Best First Book (South East Asia and Pacific).
I also have over 60 publications of individual fiction pieces in journals and anthologies. My fiction has been published in Australia, USA, Canada, Italy, Sweden, Japan, Malaysia and France.
I'm now writing my second book, a novel with the working title The Meaning of Life and Other Fictions.
