The Malayan Trilogy "Time for a Tiger", "Enemy in the Blanket", "Beds in the East"

Author(s): Anthony Burgess

Classic Fiction

'Like all good comic writers Mr Burgess lives his creations as much as he writes them. First class' - "Observer". Anthony Burgess was an officer in the Colonial Service. In "The Malayan Trilogy - Time for a Tiger, The Enemy in the Blanket and Beds in the East" - he satirises the dog days of colonialism. Victor Crabbe is a well meaning, ineffectual English man in the tropics, keen to teach the Malays what the West can do for them. Through Crabbe's rise and fall and a series of wonderfully colourful characters, Burgess lays bare racial and social prejudices of post-war Malaya during the upheaval of Independence.
