By the Book: How the Man in Green Saved Pahang, and Possibly the World

A tale combining Malaysian folklore and mythology, religion and philosophy, and a rollicking adventurous road trip, How the Man in Green Saved Pahang, and Possibly the World is an ambitious, busy, and deeply enjoyable debut novel from Joshua Kam. We speak to Joshua about the inspiration behind the book, the research it took, and how it explores Malaysia and her history in a different way. And then in Footnotes, we give our take on the novel in a mini-review.
