By the Book: William Tham's The Last Days

Communism, a handover of power, the importance of journalism, frustrated love, and a central familial mystery. All these threads are woven together in William Tham's novel, The Last Days, which is set under the shadow of the Malayan Emergency. We discuss the research and process of putting this work together, and the pressure of writing about this particular time in history. And then in Footnotes, we review the book!
