A Collection of Stories by Women

Editor: Joan Lau

New In this special collection, Silverfish Books offers a compilation of stories written by women writers reflecting the concerns of modern women, including those that deal with relationships, ageing, sexuality, illness and death. Notably, Dina Zaman's novel extract captures the continuing struggle not only between tradition and modernity among the Malays, but also within practice of tradition which relates to aspects of religion. This can be seen in the Malays' fear of scandal, and their continued dependence on the bomoh (Malay witch doctor) for help, despite it being against their religious beliefs.
