Amir on Fairly Current Show

Gosh! It's that Amir Muhammad again, popping up this time on The Fairly Current Show to talk about his new book Politicians Say the Darndest Things Vol 2 and why publishes non-fiction. (I get a mention, haha!)

The book is to be launched on Feb 14th at 6 p.m. at The Annexe, Central Market, where the special guest will be ... a chocolate fountain. (Wish all guests of honour were that interesting.)

Even before it's official launch, the book is no. 3 in MPH's hit parade!

There's much more of interest on Amir's blog . I hadn't realised that his latest film Malaysian Gods has been "restricted" ( a neither here or there kind of banning), without any reason being given. More at The Nutgraph.

Then he set up an art installlation in Rotterdam complete with white IKEA furniture and dozens of copies of Danny Lim's Malaysian Book of the Undead.

And his excellent reviews for his Pulp Friction Column continue in The Malay Mail, the latest being for Fatimah's Kampung. The week before he tackled a study called SEXUAL IDENTITY: Effeminacy Among University Students which he finds quite a hilarious read.

I wonder where Amir gets his energy from? I seem to be just watching open-mouthed from the sidelines as he swooshes Superman-like from genre to genre ... getting banned here, making best-seller lists there ... always unassuming and good-natured.
