Summary

The first contemporary Malay novel to be translated into English and the most important work of Shannon Ahmad, can be read at many levels. At the simplest level it is the story of the inarticulate peasant world of the twentieth century, little known and hardly ever written about. The author sees the Malay peasant of today as a man following a way of life not very different from that of his ancestors, still entirely dependent on the land and relying upon traditional tools and techniques.
