In this second volume of Found in Malaysia, The Nut Graph continues to ask the question of what it means to be "pendatang" in Malaysia. Drawing on the oral histories and memories of notable Malaysian personalities, this book provides a rich narrative of what it means to be Malaysian. Except for the indigenous tribes, the stories of mixed ancestries, memories, struggles, dreams and aspirations in Found in Malaysia provide evidence that being of migratory stock is part and parcel of being Malaysian regardless of whether one is Malay, Chinese, Indian or Dan Lain-lain. This volume of 50 interviews features famous Malaysians who were born in the 1930s right up to the 1980s. Through these interviews, these 50 Malaysian public figures share stories of growing up in well-loved neighbourhoods and communities. They remember a time when Malaysians were more united, share dreams of a better and fairer Malaysia, and demonstrate that sharing migrant roots is what defines the Malaysian identity.
