About This Book
Malay Sketches is a collection of stories that borrows its name from a book of anecdotes by
colonial governor Frank Swettenham, describing Malay life on the Peninsula. In Alfian Sa'at's
hands, these sketches are reimagined as flash fictions that record the lives of members of the
Malay community in Singapore. With precise and incisive prose, Malay Sketches offers the
reader profound insights into the realities of life as an ethnic minority.
