Synopses & Reviews
Marina's "Musings" columns for The Star newspaper -- compassionate, outspoken, liberated, and unabashedly liberal -- are a talking point in Malaysia's capital and throughout the country. They began as a regular personal commentary on Marina's everyday life as a mother, hut as time went on the range expanded. Her writing came to touch on, and often debate, vital issues of national and global importance and are eagerly read by a huge public. This book collects the best of the columns since 1991, and Marina herself introduces the pieces, putting them into perspective -- a perspective quite different than what is typically reported in the Western media.
