Some of the most engaging contemporary writing has seen the transformation of the political column into a literary art form. In his first collection of essays, Finding Malaysia: Making Sense of an Eccentric Nation, Zairil Khir Johari offers a quick-witted and focused reflection on some of the most pressing and contentious issues of the day. At the heart of the matter is the bane of Malaysian politics – the ethnic question – from which he explores a range of high-profile issues: identity, secularism, federalism and education. At once both philosophical and practical, Finding Malaysia lays down a marker for any serious debate over the future trajectory of the country.
