Sabah, Sarawak, will part with Malaya, about brightest and best leading the way for All

Malaysian writer Preeta Samarasan on how her country’s systemic racism forced her to move abroad and how she still mourns the loss of the nation which never quite accepted her

My COMMENT on the above link . . .

The story should not be about Malaysia, has never been since May 13, but about being somewhere where one will be accepted and recognised as among the brightest and best to lead the way for All.

Malaya not about brightest and best, has never been since May 13, will never be.

Sabah, Sarawak, will part company with Malaya, will be about brightest and best leading the way for All.

Extract from the link . . .

Preeta Samarasan was born in Malaysia and moved to the United States to finish high school at the United World College U.S.A, and attend Hamilton College.

She was enrolled in a Ph.D. program in musicology at the Eastman School of Music, University of Rochester, and had begun work on a dissertation on Gypsy music festivals in France when she left to complete her novel.

She earned her MFA in creative writing from the University of Michigan, where an earlier version of ‘Evening is the Whole Day’ won the Avery and Jule Hopwood Novel Award.

Her short fiction and nonfiction has been published or is forthcoming in the Asian Literary Review, Five Chapters, Hyphen, the Michigan Quarterly Review, EGO Magazine, A Public Space, and in the anthology Urban Odysseys: KL Stories.
