Farish Noor’s “WHAT YOUR TEACHER DIDN’T TELL YOU: The Annexe Lectures Vol.1”
 Book Launch, on Sat 5 Dec, 8pm, at the Annexe Gallery, Presented by Matahari Books

From the Annexe Gallery website : “Farish A. Noor might just be Malaysia’s hippest intellectual. His gifts are on full display in these expanded versions of public lectures that he delivered at The Annexe Gallery, Central Market Kuala Lumpur in 2008 and 2009.
Find out how “racial difference” became such a big deal in Malaysia, and contrast this against the way our distant ancestors lived. Discover the hidden stories of the keris, Hang Tuah and PAS. There’s also quite a bit of sex. Erudite, impassioned and sometimes just plain naughty, “WHAT YOUR TEACHER DIDN’T TELL YOU” is a stimulating plunge into aspects of our past that have been kept from us.

The 288-page book also contains dozens of sepia-toned photographs, many from Farish’s own collection of antiques. There’s even a bonus chapter! And it’s printed on thick (128 gsm) fully recycled paper. Retail price: RM40 (RM5 off at the launch).”

Please send me your reviews when you have read it. Thanks 🙂
