Kam Raslan's very first book. Confessions of an Old Boy, the old boy being Dato' Hamid, includes seven articles or stories as been to and seen by Dato' Hamid.
Dato' Hamid, the Old Boy as well as civil servant, who claimed that he has been everywhere and seen it all. In this book, he spills the beans on his adventures dating back as far as the 1940s, all the way from Kuala Lumpur to Monte Carlo, Los Angeles, Algiers, London and much more.
Shameless, exciting and funny, Dato' Hamid's life and adventures chart the financial, political and amorous relationships that have made Malaysia what it is today.

A LIL' THOUGHT
A book that I truly enjoy. While reading it, I really thought that Dato' Hamid is a real person, until when I googled it and found out that Dato' Hamid is fictional. He is just a creation of Kam Raslan.
Perhaps it's the way that Kam Raslan has written it, engaging us straight into the tale, and hence believing that Dato' Hamid is a real person. Worth a read.
