Product Information
Author/Editor: Salleh Ben Joned
New Pb 128 pp.
Subject: Poetry
Condition: Good
Published: 2007

This is Salleh ben Joned's first book of poems since Sajak-sajak Salleh (or Poems Sacred and Profane) and it is entirely in English. Salleh says in his foreword that, although English is not his first language - he only learned it in his teens - he has two main reasons for writing in it. Firstly, a large majority of his readers seem to be non-Malays, and, secondly, "My satires in Malay, the use of humour, parody, irony ... puns ... and other forms of word-play seem to have been taken wrongly by most of the Malay readers."

Adam's Dream is an intensely personal collection of poems, to make you laugh out loud, cry, or ponder.

Salleh ben Joned was born in Melaka in 1941. He spent several years Down Under as one of the last Colombo Plan Scholars. He got an Australian fellow-student pregnant in his first year and married her. Due to her family's disapproval of the marriage, the couple moved from the University of Adelaide to the University of Tasmania, where he became a student of major poet James McAuley.

He returned to Malaysia in 1973, lectured in English Literature at Universiti Malaya until 1983, and quit to become a freelance scribbler. His first book was the bilingual poetry collection, Sajak-sajak saleh (Teks, 1987). His publisher of the first edition of that book later committed suicide. (A second enlarged edition of the book was published in 2002 by Pustaka Cipta.) It was followed by As I Please (Skoob, 1994) and Nothing is Sacred (Maya Press, 2003) which compiled his popular New Straits Times column in Malaysia. He has also made a few film apperances.
