              A dazzling memoir from a talented Malaysian writer about family and home, and a vivid portrait of the deeply flawed country of her birth. Beth persuades her ageing parents on a road trip around their former home, Malaysia. She intends to retrace their honeymoon of 45 years before..., but their journey doesn't quite work out as she planned. Only the family mantra, 'Eat first, talk later' keeps them (and perhaps the country) from falling apart. Around them, corruption, censorship of the media, detentions without trial, and deaths in custody continue. Any protests are violently put down by riot police. Her parents argue, while, lovelorn after a failed relationship in Paris, Beth tries to turn their story into a love story. Meanwhile, she's embroiled in a turbulent relationship with an opposition activist, Jing, who is at the forefront of the democratic struggle to overthrow the corrupt government. Eat First, Talk Later is a beautifully written, absorbing memoir of a country rarely in the public eye, but with many fascinating, and troubling, sides to it. It's also a book about how we tell family stories; about love and betrayal; home and belonging; and about the joys of food.
