This post was meant to be a response to Yasmine’s excellent summary of what we got up to on Friday night at Borders – mainly trying to run through what could be a semester’s worth of comparative lit study in school in about half an hour.

Our inspiration was a local book of short stories which has recently been shortlisted for an international short fiction prize, a book which I discovered in a Borders in KL (how fitting) and set about reading because I am one of those truly heinous types who likes to look at whatever creative, local-made thing is set before me if only to sniff and believe, truly beliiieeeeve that if only I would do something, that something would be so much better.

Vile, isn’t it?
