  2. 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 [...]


  3. As one who is new to Malaysian writing and culture, I found Readings from Readings 2 a delight The collection features prose and poetry of various lengths that were read at a live event by the authors themselves I wish I had been present to experience that the emotional range going on in these pages would have been something to experience in person.Full of beautiful imagery as found in the poem Kuala Lumpur Trilogy , heart rending tension in the story Of Snakes and Flower Cars , and the cold, sa [...]

Readings from Readings 2 New writing from Malaysia, Singapore and beyond, is a wonderful collection of work, comprising short pieces of fiction, non fiction and poetry The flavour is undoubtedly Malaysian ok, and Singaporean with sprinklings of other voices in between I found that I preferred the local or at least Asian pieces than the odd sprinkling of Western names that found their way into the book For one, Marc de Faoite s pieces on Night Fishing in Langkawi and The Milking Pen were rather [...]


  6. 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 [...]


  7. A nice little medley of stories like a box of chocolates some you like, some you don t.My favourite picks Rani Taxis Away, Blue, KL Trilogy, Milking Pen, Waiting
