LONGLISTED FOR THE MAN BOOKER PRIZEPenang, 1939. Sixteen-year-old Philip Hutton is a loner. Half English, half Chinese and feeling neither, he discovers a sense of belonging in an unexpected friendship with Hayato Endo, a Japanese diplomat.
Philip shows his new friend around his adored island of Penang, and in return Endo trains him in the art and discipline of aikido.
But such friendship comes at a terrible price. Tan Twan Eng's masterful debut novel is a haunting and unforgettable story of betrayal, barbaric cruelty, steadfast courage and enduring love.
