By the Book: Malaysian Tamil Literature

In this episode, we explore Malaysian Tamil writing - both the rich tradition that exists here, but also the challenges in nurturing the scene and garnering a wider readership. We’re joined by Mannar Mannan Maruthai, who gives us an introduction to the scene, and shares recommendations, including works by Mydin Sultan, Re. Karthigesu, Pachai Balan, and S.P. Bama.
