Descrição da editora
A sequel to 'Becoming Ah Lan Toh', this new novel continues the ongoing story of Ah Lan. She has now completely transitioned into a full blown man. He is more than merely unusual in his gender transformation. He has managed to outlive all the characters in the last book—by more than a hundred years.
He is a very very old gentleman these days. Having lived for over a hundred years, he has come to accept his longevity. But lately he has noticed once again the beginnings to another set of subtle changes are about to happen.
Now officially named Orlando Toh, he had married and had children. They in turn married and had their own children. Living as he is now for up to a hundred years and more, he regrets watching loved ones come and go.
Now, still living in ultra modernised Chow Kit in vastly developed Malaysia, he mostly contends himself with a quiet life, living under the same roof as his surviving great great granddaughter, Mary. And she is now herself 80 years old, with her own grown and married children, and in the course of things, she has her own grandchildren.
Mary will be planning his great great grandfather's ultimate birthday.
In the course of her preparations she learns some hidden histories about old Orlando.
And in the end, what will happen to Orlando?
