A darkly humorous coming-of-age novel set in Brunei on the island of Borneo, Written in Black offers a snapshot of a few days in the life of ten-year-old Jonathan Lee, attending the funeral of his Ah Kong, or grandfather, and right on the heels of his mother leaving for Australia and his brother getting kicked out of the house and joining a rock band. Annoyed at being the primary outlet of his father's pent-up animosity, Jonathan escapes his grandfather's wake in an empty coffin and embarks on a journey through the backwaters of Brunei to bring his disowned brother back for the funeral and to learn the truth about his absent mother. The journey is one of self-discovery for Jonathan and the quest takes him across the little-known Sultanate, past gangs of glue-sniffing poklans (Brunei's teenage delinquents), cursed houses and weird shopkeepers, to a truth that will finally set him free.
