Today I was very pleased to be at the launch of Ronggeng Ronggeng: Malaysian Short Stories at the GeorgeTown Literary Festival. I was delighted that Malachi Edwin Vethamani, the editor, of the book chose one of my tales (Mr Petronas) for inclusion in the book amongst so many luminaires of Malaysian literature.
There are 28 stories, spanning a period of 60 plus years of Malaysian writing, so it’ll be a very interesting read,
I was sitting in the front row at the laucnch and so had the opportunity to take photos of all the writers who read their stories …
I didn’t manage to get a photo of myself as I didn’t get a chance to do a selfie on stage!
