We, the Survivors description

We, the Survivors is the story of Ah Hock, born in a fishing village in Malaysia, a man whose small ambitions for a better life are thwarted by a countryside of deprivation. Twice longlisted for the Booker and winner of the Whitbread prize for first novel, We, the Survivors is the first of Tash Aw’s novels to be set in Malaysia. Confronting uncomfortable truths about his home country, it is an eloquent contribution to his ongoing investigation into the changing nature of Asian society.
