Description

DAYS OF CHANGE is a sequel to ECHOES OF SILENCE. The narrator is 55-year old Hafiz, whose name means ‘the preserver’ and ‘the memorizer’. When his story begins, Hafiz is suffering from memory loss following a fall down a ravine in Ulu Banir. Unable to talk to a psychiatrist, he uses the I Ching, the Chinese ‘book of changes’ to trigger his memory. His objectives: to remember the circumstances of his fall, and why he now feels repulsed by his beautiful young wife. His experiment results in 8 notebooks, in which he records his memories of his childhood, the women in his life, his battle against a major corporation bent on appropriating his land and flooding the Banir valley for a Disneyland-type theme park, and his efforts to contribute to Malaysia’s progress and development while preserving local traditional knowledge and his own moral integrity.
