Waterstones Says

Covering ground from comedy to colonialism, comedian Phil Wang delivers a witty, wry and candid reflection on race, belonging, his British-Malaysian heritage and what it means to be from two places.

Signed Edition - a standard edition is available here

"But where are you really from?"

Phil Wang has been asked this question so many times he's lost count. So, finally, he decided to write a book about it. About how to be from two places at once.

Phil was born in the UK, in Stoke-on-Trent to an English mother and a Chinese-Malaysian father. Three weeks after his birth, the Wang family returned to his fathers' hometown in Malaysia, and at age 16, Phil was uprooted once again, to return with his family to the UK.

In Sidesplitter, Phil reflects on race, belonging and cultural cachet, bringing his trademark cynicism and wit to topics that range from food and comedy to empire and colonialism.
