By the Book: Politics on the Page

It’s been one year since Malaysia’s watershed elections. We mark the anniversary by discussing the books that awoke in us, in ways both overt and subtle, a sense of political awareness. Picks include George Orwell’s Animal Farm, The Diary of Anne Frank, Alan Moore’s Watchmen, and Sonny Liew’s The Art of Charlie Chan Hock Chye.

Produced by: Lee Chwi Lynn, Sharmilla Ganesan

Presented by: Lee Chwi Lynn, Sharmilla Ganesan
