By the Book: Book Club September 2020 - 2020: An Anthology

2020 is a year that has always loomed large in the Malaysian imagination - a year when we would be a fully developed country (whatever that means), and really come into our own (ditto). 2020: An Anthology is all about exploring what 2020 means to 20 Malaysian writers, and filtering this year and its promise through short pieces of writing. We sit down and discuss our favourites, and how it feels to have read this book about 2020, in a version of it that is beyond what many of us could have imagined. Then in Footnotes, we try to picture what fiction and writing about a decolonised future might look like.
