New Book | Paper & Text

It's a bit of a surprise book, and admittedly also a bit of a work project, but I'm happy to announce a new project! It was an honour to edit the works of Lalita Sinha, Alicia Izharuddin, Show Ying Xin, Rosalind Chua and Fong Min Hun in this collection of essays on the trials and trade of Malaysian literature, detailing everything from the challenges in the local publishing scene to the nuances of literary translation, in this relatively short but (hopefully!) nuanced look at where exactly we are, and where we are going. 

Paper & Text will be available from Gerakbudaya and launched in conjunction with the (virtual) George Town Literary Festival in 2020 -- specifically the Swadaya x GTLF collaboration.
