Whereas most books on Penang history concentrate on buildings and the exploits of colonials and entrepreneurs, the author, a distinguished retired journalist, prefers to unearth tales of what life was like for the ordinary Penangite of the past. In his third collection of stories he employs his newsman's craft to explain some of Penang's oddities, rekindle some gossip and bring back to life an array of Penang's forgotten characters. 247 pages with many black and white photographs.
