About This Book

In this rich embroidery of stories set against the landscape of the Malaysian capital, the city of Kuala Lumpur is as much a character as any of the denizens, drifters, and dreamers portrayed in the stories. These are portraits of the capital seen through the prism of stories written by an array of new literary voices. Each writer's experience of or passage through the city is variegated; at some point in their lives, they have grown up in, stopped over in, moved into, lost and found themselves in the labyrinthine chaos of the city. Here 18 writers present a sweeping literary portrait of the city as seen through their eyes, and in ways unexpected and capturing the exuberant madness and cultural diversity of the city and its enduring spirit.
