Anne Elizabeth Moore’s book, Cambodian Grrrl: Self-Publishing in Phnom Penh, is reviewed by Kevin Dunn. Here’s a little excerpt:
In 2007, Anne Elizabeth Moore travelled to Cambodia to live in an all-female college dormitory and teach first generation female students about self-publishing and zine-making. This little book is a result of her time there: part memoir, part investigative journalism. But there is so much more going on within these ninety-six pages.
Here’s the link to the full book review on Razorcake.
The city of Phnom Penh offers public dance lessons on a newly revitalized riverfront directly in front of prime minister Hun Sen’s urban home. Every night before dusk, much of the city gathers to bust a few Apsara moves and rehearse a few choreographed hip hop dances learned from a slew of attractive young men at the head of each group. Following on the heels of Cambodian Grrrl: Self- Publishing in Phnom Penh, Anne Elizabeth Moore compiled photographs that document Phnom Penh’s bustling nightlife and thus form a portrait of a nation’s emerging middle class.
