Bunga Emas and Tracks of a Tramp first appeared over half a century ago, in the period after Malayan Independence from Britain in 1957, and the formation of Malaysia in 1963. Bunga Emas is a tribute, an offering by Chinese and Indian writers and poets, who had made Malaysia their home, to 'their evanescent mother culture'. This anthology of Malayan/Malaysian Literature in English, Chinese and Tamil from 1930 to 1963 (all translated into English), is something that's never been done before, or since. An excellent historical record of pre- and post-independence Malaysian writing that proves that good stories never grow old or tired. A refreshing collection.
