101 Stories of Old Penang
A Shukor Rahman
Just when one might have had one's fill of stories about Penang's 'heritage', here's a contribution with a difference in that it's written by one of the city's most senior journalists. For a change, the book is not about his life but about some fascinating aspects of Penang that he has managed to unearth in his long career. Most of the stories are two to three pages long and good for either dipping into or for a long concentrated read. With story headings like ' Penang's Pre-War Gold Rush,' 'When Province Wellesley Exported Elephants to India' and ' Bionic Girl', the reader is guaranteed an interesting and, at times, racy read. 282 pages.
