Following the success of his first novel, Taikor, which was nominated for the 2006 International IMPAC Dublin Literary Award, Khoo Kheng-Hor, with his second novel, Mamasan, plunges readers into the glitzy world of nightclubs. As Khoo takes you behind the scenes of a large Kuala Lumpur cabaret and nightclub, be shocked and fascinated by the lives of a host of vividly drawn characters, from the dance hostesses, mamasans, managers, bouncers to the patrons themselves. Be prepared to find yourself in a totally different world, where money plenty of it is king, arousing greed, lust, violence. Yet, be surprised to find out that the players are, in truth, no different from us, the average guys, as they too could love, hate, dream, hope, despair, feel hurt, bleed, laugh and cry as we do. As a passionate storyteller, Khoo spins a tale encompassing other tales covering juvenile delinquency, growing up, deceit versus honesty, love, broken homes, corruption and abuse of power by police officers, rape, blackmail and murder. Be entertained.
