Being Malaysian

In this collection of stories, 30 young Malaysian writers ponder what being Malaysian means to them in everyday and festive contexts.

Here you find rich imagery and voices, from Manglish dialogues, kopitiams and mamaks to Merdeka celebrations and cultural costumes. In every character, you will observe how Malaysians are rooted in filial piety, academic ambitions, religious and racial tolerance, and a little bit of conspicuous consumption.

Being Malaysian allows the old and young young to reflect on what it means to be a citizen of a nation that is undergoing its most exciting and challenging times.
