Nury Vittachi, Lecturer of PolyU Design, recently published his new book “The Curious Diary of Mr Jam: Official humorist for repressive regimes“ about a humorist in Asia refusing to believe that his audiences of conservative Muslims, Communist officials, religious police and Asian citizens in general have no sense of humor.
Nury teaches students how to write stories and how to create content for novels and movies. He is a successful author himself, with more than 20 books in print, many of which were published by major publishing houses around the world. He is PolyU Design’s favourite MC who hosted for many major events like Annual Show.
About the book:
Sam Jam’s whole life had been a tragic mistake.
As a humorist in Asia he had repeatedly been sacked, blacklisted and chased out of buildings.
But he refuses to believe that his audiences of conservative Muslims, Communist officials, religious police and Asian citizens in general have no sense of humor.
This funny, poignant tale, which the author describes as “a novel for legal reasons”, is more than just laugh-out-loud entertainment. It shines an essential light on what global culture will look like as eastern ways of thinking start to dominate.
