Ten stories from each writer, 30 stories in all to introduce readers to three new Malaysian authors, each with his or her own distinct voice, each with a slightly different story to tell and way of telling it.

Shih-Li Kow went on to write Ripples that was shortlisted for the Frank O’Connor Prize in 2009, (Murakamiesque) Chua kok Yee penned his acclaimed Without Anchovies, and Rumaizah Abu Bakar’s The Female Cell has been compared to Somerset Maugham.

These are all writers to look forward to, writers who are genuinely Malaysian, Asian and modern.
