Mao's Last Dancer by Li Cunxin
The story of China's best known dancer and his defection to America at the time when China was still closed to the world. The story and the way it is written, made me laugh sometimes and sad sometimes.
Malaysian Maverick ( Mahathir Mohamad In Turbulent Times ) by Barry Wain
Mahathir's " I Did It My Way " premiership of 22 years chronicled. The book was almost banned! A fascinating read.
Offshore (In Search Of An Island Of My Own ) by Ben Fogle
One soul's search for an island to call his own. Who wouldn't love to have an island to call his own? Not me. But I am too lazy to go search for one and do not have the wherewithal - yet! Who knows? Like they say, nothing is impossible in life.
Karpal Singh (True Malaysian ) by Melissa Loovi
Malaysia's Top legal giant aka The Tiger of Jelutong. And what an apt sobriquet! Just like the tiger, brave, noble and smart. A collection of interviews and tributes on the Tiger's life as a family man, lawyer and politician, to commerate his 70th birthday. Some stunning photographs ( like the cover Photo ) and some not seen before.
Tuan Djek by Stephen Dobbs
Not your typical matsalleh colonalist! Tuan Djek stayed behind and lived in Malaysia, in Johor to be precise. His life could teach us a thing or two about 1Malaysia. Glad that I came across the book while at the Mall Shopping Centre, K.L.
