Daryl Lim was born in Kuala Lumpur in 1984. He migrated to Sydney as a young child and grew up surreptitiously imbibing stories of his parents’ homeland. His writing has appeared in Peril Magazine, been short-listed for a Varuna House Fellowship and is a recipient of a Writing NSW Mentorship. He loves all kinds of fiction but novels like The Quiet American, On the Beach, The Sheltering Sky, or anything by Kazuo Ishiguro, Cormac McCarthy and Annie Proulx (among others) seem to be the ones that linger in his psyche. The Snow in Kuala Lumpur is his first novel.
He currently lives in Sydney with his wife and son (in an apartment run by two sleepy cats).
