"Malaysia today needs a dose of fun and happiness that goes beyond skin-deep."

Jumping back and forth through his retirement, Zaid Ibrahim traverses the globe one golf course at a time, from Bukit Besi to Black Mountain, from Saujana to St. Andrews, in this collection of essays that are one part reflection, one part confession, and one part meditation. These 67 short vignettes make for quite the magnificent mishmash. Whether he is contemplating the spiritual underpinnings of the sport or the complex relationship between mosque and state, Zaid Ibrahim brings his unique blend of irreverence, wit and perceptive analysis to bera on the marvellous mania that is both gold and Malaysia.

Far & Sure: For Golf and Country is a view of our nation from the green, the quiet considerations of a man with Malaysia forever on his mind, irrespective where he chooses to lay his clubs.

Kassim Ahmad di antara susuk paling menarik dalam jagat politik, pemikiran dan sastera negara. Beliau telah beberapa kali membuat gempar, misalnya pada tahun 1950an apabila mengemukakan Hang Jebat sebagai pahlawan melayu dan bukannya Hang Tuah; pada tahun 1980an dengan mengkritik penggunaan Hadis sebagai sumber kedua perundangan Islam; dan di tahun 1980an apabila terlibat dengan Shahnon Ahmad dalam polemic Sastera Islam – salah satu di antara segelintir polemic hangat yang pernah muncul di Malaysia. Penglibatan Kassim Ahmad dalam politik telah membawanya ke puncak kepimpinan Parti Sosialis Rakyat Malaysia (Ketua I PSRM) dan ia juga telah menelantarkannya dalam penjara, di bawah akta ISA, selama hampir lima tahun (1976-1981). Sebaik dibebaskan, Pak Kassim menerbitkan catatan pengalaman beliau sejurus sebelum di tangkap dan sepanjang ditahan di bawah akta berkenaan.

In this second volume of Found in Malaysia, The Nut Graph continues to ask the question of what it means to be "pendatang" in Malaysia. Drawing on the oral histories and memories of notable Malaysian personalities, this book provides a rich narrative of what it means to be Malaysian. Except for the indigenous tribes, the stories of mixed ancestries, memories, struggles, dreams and aspirations in Found in Malaysia provides evidence that being of migratory stock is part and parcel of being Malaysian.

If there s one truly authentic Malaysian voice expounding on all that he loves and hates in this multicultural, maddening country, it s Patrick Teoh. With his trademark razor-sharp wit, Teoh, in his aptly-named Teohlogy articles (previously published in the now defunct Off The Edge magazine from the years 2005 to 2010), shares his views on Malaysian life, topical affairs and issues that concern the ordinary Malaysian, with a generous sprinkling of realism, humour and provocation. Some call him a cynic (or an old grump, or a ... never mind, it s a long list!) but Teohlogy is all about telling it as it is, warts and all. Be it the farcical antics of politicians or the perils of public transport, Teoh s candid, no-holds-barred perspectives will not only have readers chuckling in recognition but also realising the obstacles of a young nation like Malaysia. From his hilarious catch phrases dunked in Malaysian sirap bandung to his digs at the powers-that-be and Malaysians themselves, Teohlogy presents a Malaysia with all its flaws but hopes that we will not give up trying to understand the idiosyncrasies of this beguiling country. Can-ah?
