Book Review, 28th August 2011

The [Malaysian] Sun Daily wrote that: ‘Paul Callan has obviously done his homework … by presenting this captivating story set in 1890 Malaya amidst the tin-mining camps of Perak’s Kinta Valley ... Callan’s in-depth research into the customs of the locals and his vivid descriptions transport the reader into the thick of things easily and once drawn into the story, it’s hard to put the book down. An epic tale of love, valour and secrets, The Dulang Washer (MPH Group), which is Callan’s first novel, is definitely a page-turner.
