Product Description

Selected as one of “50 Best Malaysian Titles for International Rights 2018/19”.

In her debut novel, Dr. Lina Latif brings together her many years of experience as a broadcaster, academic, researcher and most importantly, as a writer. It isn’t just that the plot is played out amidst the uncertainty that defines our world today but that the characters are in themselves an accurate depiction of the complexities of human nature.

“I have always known Dr. Lina Latif as a journalist and academic. Never would I have thought that a novel so honest and sincere lived within her. She doesn’t waste time with unnecessary descriptions in ‘Sidelines’. Instead, she focuses on character interaction and dialogue to stimulate the readers emotions. Great read!” — Zan Azlee, Journalist, writer, documentary filmmaker

“Lina juggles many roles reporter, researcher, producer, director, editor, manager, tutor, lecturer, mentor and she wears many other caps in the world of media and communications. A former practitioner, she now trains many up and coming storytellers at a private university. And she is a great storyteller.” — Suhaimi Sulaiman, CEO & Editor-in-Chief, Astro AWANI
