Synopsis

Elsie Sze's Ghost Cave: a novel of Sarawak is a work of historical fiction, set mainly in jungles of Borneo in the mid-1800s and 1960s, and follows the adventures of two young men.  Ah Min, a Chinese immigrant, and his best friend seek their fortune and explore a humid land of beguiling women, of fragrant spices and of ghosts.  The oppression of the English White Rajah draws the men into a rebellion that will have catastrophic consequences.  Sze will be in conversation with Jason Ng.
