"Arriving in Malaya in 1883, at the age of 17,…Clifford became a cadet in Perak and began a close association of more than 20 years with the Malay people and their lives. …He learned the language and spent long periods living in remote parts of the country. Those experiences…gave Clifford a romantic taste for the exotic that became the subject of his many essays, stories, and novels published from 1896...."
