Synopsis:
Robert Raymer has had the pleasure of chasing after a madwoman who stuffed his letter down her blouse, being trapped by a monitor lizard inside his own house, and being frisked by three men wearing pincushions. He's had the close encounters with several Emmy- and Oscar-winning directors and actresses, including Bruce Beresford, John Boorman, Glenn Close, Catherine Deneuve, and Jodie Foster. He's been arm-twisted into playing Santa Claus, misled on a night hike, and stood up on Valentine's Day! He's held a live crocodile in his arms and survived two operations with two of his sons, who naturally got all the attention. He's been an extra in five movie scenes, written four books, fathered three sons, taught at two universities, and has, on more than one occasion, been completely out of luck! In Tropical Affairs: Episodes from an Expat's Life in Malaysia, a collection of creative non-fiction, the author gives a lush, multi-layered rendition of the Malaysian way of life, colored and influenced by his own experiences living in Malaysia. *** About the Author: ROBERT RAYMER is an American who has lived in Malaysia for over twenty years. His fiction and non-fiction have been widely published. He lives with his family in Kuching, Sarawak, where he used to teach creative writing at University Malaysia Sarawak. He previously taught at Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM) in Penang where he lived for 21 years.
