Reading list

Here's the cover of the updated Strongman, The Extraordinary Life of Hun Sen, by Harish and Julie Mehta, which includes six new chapters, new interviews and revelations from declassified CIA files, amongst other add-ons. 400 pages, which should keep me occupied for a few days, after I was sent a press review copy. So far it reads like a loud trumpet in Hun Sen's favour, though the new chapters might give a more balanced view, I hope. It's one of three books I have on the go at the moment, the others are the NGO-inspired Unsung Heroes Cambodia and Rithy Panh's The Elimination. And then of course, there's a huge pile of other books that are gathering dust, but are equally deserving of my attention. Not enough hours in the day.
