And here we are, the fifth and final episode. "It's not about me," reminds the author, Guat. Writing Echoes of Silence, she wanted to explore that emotion of how she, like many others felt lost at one time, as the children of colonialism, an establishment that left behind their orphaned children as Malaya gained its independence. The author indulges listeners in a very personal manner, where she narrates excerpts from her first Malaysian novel about the blossoming of a love affair that was inter-ethnic and inter-geographical between Ai Lian, and her Michael Templeton. -- Dr. Chuah Guat Eng is a Malaysian novelist and professional writer who read English Literature at University of Malaya Kuala Lumpur, German Literature at Ludwig-Maximilian University in Munich, Germany, and she has a PhD from the National University of Malaysia (Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia).
