Exploring Burma’s Bookshops: Kant kaw Wut Yee

Originally a publisher of respected literary fiction, the wife and husband team have expanded their business into a small, attractive bookshop.  Though the bookshop is for Burmese readers and doesn’t sell English language books by Myanmar writers, it’s worth checking out just to see the quality of independent bookshops in the city (and the contemporary state of literature itself).  One of the owners, Ma Waing Waing is a former secretary of the Myanmar Publishers and Booksellers Association and knows her stuff.
