Marina Mahathir on The Apple and the Tree

What is it like being the daughter of Malaysia’s longest-serving Prime Minister? More specifically, what was it like for her to chart her own path that was often at odds with his, while also acknowledging the huge role he plays in her life? In her memoir, Marina Mahathir attempts to answer these questions with her own lens, taking us through events both personal and political from her childhood all the way to present day. We speak with Marina about writing the book, and the unique challenges of telling this story.
