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.
