Tropic Temper is also a memoir. It is far more than simply a description of Malaya, that ” peninsula of cloud curried with storms ” and of the people who live there. It is also concerned with what the author felt about that country and what happened to him during the year he lived there, teaching at the University of Kuala Lumpur and travelling wherever and whenever the spirit moved him.
