His second novel, titled 'Map of the Invisible World', was released in May 2009 to critical acclaim, with Time Magazine calling it "a complex, gripping drama of private relationships" and describing "Aw's matchless descriptive prose; immense intelligence and empathy." His 2013 novel 'Five Star Billionaire' was longlisted for the 2013 Man Booker Prize. His work of non-fiction 'The Face: Strangers on a Pier' was published in 2016 and became a finalist for the LA Times Book Prize.
His work has won an O. Henry Prize and been published in The New Yorker, the London Review of Books, A Public Space and the landmark Granta 100, amongst others. He is also a contributing opinion writer for the New York Times.
