Quarantine Books Twist

On this episode of A Bit of Culture, Kam Raslan has a chat with author and journalist, Kean Wong. The duo discuss on their quarantine reads – Fatal Shore by Robert Hughes and Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens. Kean Wong delves into Fatal Shore, a grim record on the founding of Australia. He also touches on his new book, Rebirth: Reformasi, Resistance and Hope in New Malaysia. Then Kam shares how the classic book, Oliver Twist resonates with him during his isolation period.
