Jasmine Leong wants to be the next CEO of Phoenix, her family’s billion-ringgit company known especially for its bak kwa. But when Jasmine discovers she is actually a Malay Muslim, her newfound identity threatens to upend her life and ambitions. Set in Kuala Lumpur and other areas of Malaysia,¬†The Accidental Malay¬†examines the human cost of a country’s racial policies, and paints a portrait of a woman unwilling to accept the fate history has designated for her.
