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 🙂

Put LAT’s comic books in your shopping list and bring the ‘Kampung Boy’ series back home.

You don’t need to be Malaysian or to live in Malaysia to enter LAT’s world: it is Malaysia. If you have visited Malaysia, that means that you can appreciate LAT. If you enjoyed visiting Malaysia, then you will enjoy reading LAT’s books. If you wish to share a piece of Malaysia with family or friends, and if you are looking for something to keep the Malaysian atmosphere, then the ‘Kampung Boy’ series is the best purchase.  LAT’s comics books are available in all good bookshops but most of the time instead of being promoted at the front desk – as they richly deserve – they are hidden and you would need to ask the staff where they are. 

I hope my modest contribution would help in promoting LAT’s talent among visitors and travellers, and that more people will share my interest and admiration of this very special person.

Breaking news : if you are in KL there is an exhibition of LAT’s cartoons (original drawings),  14-31 th of August, at Bangsar Shopping Center (Bangsar).
