Readings From Readings 2: New Writing From Malaysia, Singapore And Beyond

The victim of a snatch theft adopts a rock which she carries everywhere for protection; a world-famous author plots the perfect suicide in an anonymous hotel room, and a young neurosurgeon finds himself on the other side of the medical equation after a tragic accident. From the village headman who travels to weddings on his tractor, to an androgynous rock singer with a U2 tribute band, and a beautiful ghost haunting abandoned warehouses with her lover, the book is packed with fascinating characters and intriguing situations.

This second collection of stories, poems and essays under the Readings from Readings banner is as diverse as the writers who’ve penned the pieces. What unites them is their connection with Kuala Lumpur’s longest running literary event, Readings@Seksan, which provides a regular platform for new work.
