    The first volume comprised of poems and stories in both English and Malay This time, Readings from Readings comes back almost exclusively in English It feels as though the second volume is targeted at readers beyond Malaysia and Singapore I m biased, but to me it s a good move.The book is well edited, with minimal typos, and the presentation is absolutely lovely The stories and poems are so much stronger in this volume Some of the stories are heavy handed and didactic, and some are so open ended [...]

    Every so often you discover by chance a writer or writers you ve never heard of before, and I had this experience when I received a review copy of this book It s a compilation of stories and poems by a variety of mostly South Asian names, only one of which I had ever heard of.My way of reading foreign literature is to let it flow over me and make its impressions on me When I read Tolstoy and Dickens in high school, loads of words and customs and concepts in their books were foreign to me I embra [...]
