The Lockdown Chronicles (featuring one of my stories)

Image
  I'm delighted to have a short story featured in this collection of Malaysian lockdown stories, and flattered (and somewhat discombobulated) to be featured as a 'Malaysian Voice'. Though given that I've lived in Malaysia for almost as long as I've ever lived anywhere, I'll take it, if with a slight sense of being an impostor. That said, I'm not the only non-Malaysian 'Malaysian Voice' featured among the 19 contributors. My story is called MCO - Manicure Control Order.  You can listen to me read a short extract here: The Lockdown Chronicles is available for Gerakbudaya Bookshop in Penang and elsewhere. https://gerakbudayapenang.com/product/fiction-poetry/the-lockdown-chronicles/
