Sir Vidia's Shadow

This heartfelt and revealing account of Paul Theroux's thirty-year friendship with the legendary V. S.

Climbing Kinabalu Comfortably

Situated in the State of Sabah in East Malaysia, the summit of Mt Kinabalu is the highest point on the island of Borneo. Standing at 4095m, this enormous granite massif is Malaysia’s only alpine peak and sees hundreds of climbers every day. Even a disastrous earthquake in 2015 did not deter the crowds. Online information tells us that Kinabalu is an “easy” climb requiring no technical climbing skills. While the part about the standard tourist trail being non-technical is quite true, many who have approached the mountain without adequate preparations found out the hard way that the climb is far from easy for the inexperienced and ill-prepared. While most people will still be successful ...

After the fall of Singapore in 1942, the conquering Japanese Army transferred some 2500 British and Australian prisoners to a jungle camp at Sandakan, on the east coast of North Borneo. There they were beaten, broken, worked to death, thrown into bamboo cages on the slightest pretext and subjected to tortures so ingenious and hideous that the victims were driven to the brink of madness. But it was only to be the beginning of the nightmare. In late 1944 when Allied aircraft began bombing the coastal towns of Sandakan and Jesselton, the Japanese resolved to abandon the prison camp and move the prisoners 250 miles inland to Ranau. The journey there became known as the Sandakan Death marches. Of the thousand plus prisoners who set out on the epic marches, only six survived. This is both their story and the story of the fallen.
