Update: Listen to a recording of the premiere here on soundcloud .

In 2008 I bought a copy of Australian children’s author and illustrator Shaun Tan’s latest series of short stories, Tales from Outer Suburbia. I, like many people, had been a fan of Shaun Tan’s work for years. The author from Perth has a real gift for bittersweet storytelling accompanied by bizarre yet comforting illustrations, and his work has rightfully been lauded as powerful, unique, and universal. Tales from Outer Suburbia was just as awesome as his previous works, but one work in particular struck a real chord with me.
