LONGMEADOW – In 2014, Bondfire Books published Dr. Andrew Lam’s debut novel Two Sons of China, a novel of the Second World War. The book recently won Honorable Mention Awards for fiction from the 2014 New England and London Book Festivals.
“I feel lucky and honored that my novel received these awards,” says Lam. “I wrote this book because I wanted readers to learn more about America’s war in China—a largely undiscovered part of World War II history.”
Of the novel, New York Times bestselling author William Martin wrote, “Prepare to be captivated. Two Sons of China takes you to WWII China, introduces you to a fascinating cast of characters, and spins a terrific tale of adventure and romance. If you love historical fiction, or any fiction, don’t miss it.”
Dr. Lam is a retinal surgeon at Baystate Medical Center and Assistant Professor at Tufts University School of Medicine. Before becoming a physician, he earned a history degree from Yale. His first book, Saving Sight, about his work as an eye surgeon, has been an Amazon bestseller and was a Finalist in the 2014 Next Generation Indie Book Awards. He lives with his wife and four children in Longmeadow, where he serves on the Finance Committee.
This month Dr. Lam will be recognized at award ceremonies in Boston and at the British Library in London.Learn more about Two Sons of China and Saving Sight at
