Fernando has been described as "one of the three prose writers who should rightfully be considered at the forefront of Malaysian literature written in English.? In this, his first novel, he uses the experiences of four young men from different racial backgrounds struggling to keep their friendship against the backdrop of race riots in the early 1950s. However it is not just a boys' adventure story but also a national allegory looking forward to a multi-racial post colonial future. The novel is one of the most influential ones written by a Malaysian in English because of its modernist and experimental style mixing the fiction of the novel with historic and cultural references. 147 pages.
