This is an anthology of 19 Malaysian short stories that percolate from the Covid-19 lockdown. The storytellers here, who include Pauline Fan, Mwaffaq Al-Hajjar, Pete Teo, Marc de Faoite and Hartini Zainudin, speak with thought-provoking voices that are individual and valuable. With a bonus cartoon by Anurendra Jegadeva and a foreword by Jahabar Sadiq - this collectively, might be the definitive Malaysian experience of 2020.
