Dec 2019 Town Boy

Title : Town Boy

Authors : Lat

Publisher : 1MDB

Town Boy, the sequel to the bestselling the Kampung Boy, encapsulates Let’s coming-of-afe years in Sungai Rakam, Ipoh. Here, Lat transitioned from a scruffy kampong kid into pencil-wielding young adult, with a heart as big as his pile of hair. This book also witnessed his growing passion for music, as portrayed in the friendship he shared with Frankie. Although imaginary, Frankie is a character based on the many friends Lat made while growing up – friends who shared his love for music. Life was easy and simple back then. Young Lat and his friends immersed themselves in things they were passionate about while the burdens of the world were the business of the parents.
