In this volume are six new writers (five from Malaysia, and one from the Maldives), from different Silverfish Writing Programmes, who not only show signs of talent but, more importantly, stamina.
People read for many reasons. For us, the best part of reading is about learning something new about us, past and present, from the countrys many untold and untellable stories. We discover a tango club in the heart of Kuala Lumpur, get a glimps life in the new villages, confront the limits of our hypocrisy, and laugh out loud at many wacky tales about us.
If you are Malaysian. youd identify with many of the situations. As a visitor, youd be hard-pressed to get a better quick guide to the country.
