||Ng Kim Chew's stories are raw, rural, and rich with the traditions of his native Malaysia. They are also full of humor and spirit, demonstrating a deep appreciation for human ingenuity in the face of poverty, oppression, and exile. Ng Kim Chew creatively captures the riot of cultures that roughly coexist on the Malay Peninsula. In prose that is intimate and atmospheric, these stories depict the struggles of individuals torn between their ancestral and adoptive homes.
