    1. I love the fact that there's been a Readings from Readings 2, keeping up with the momentum is good. I took Creative Writing from Sharon Bakar at one point in life and have been in love with reading and writing every since. I can't say I do it diligently, but when I do it, I am liberated. It's therapeutic and I recommend it for everyone! Similar to the book - so many different people with so many different stories to tell. Many broke my heart - then mended it - then gave it hope.Someday, I hope t [...]


    2. The first volume comprised of poems and stories in both English and Malay. This time, Readings from Readings comes back almost exclusively in English. It feels as though the second volume is targeted at readers beyond Malaysia and Singapore. I'm biased, but to me it's a good move.The book is well-edited, with minimal typos, and the presentation is absolutely lovely. The stories and poems are so much stronger in this volume. Some of the stories are heavy-handed and didactic, and some are so open- [...]


    3. As one who is new to Malaysian writing and culture, I found Readings from Readings 2 a delight. The collection features prose and poetry of various lengths that were read at a live event by the authors themselves. I wish I had been present to experience that; the emotional range going on in these pages would have been something to experience in person.Full of beautiful imagery as found in the poem 'Kuala Lumpur Trilogy', heart-rending tension in the story 'Of Snakes and Flower Cars', and the col [...]


    4. Every piece in this book was stellar, whether it dealt with suicidal ideation or a cat's opinion of who should ask forgiveness of whom. Every piece took me into the everyday life in a world that's unknown and exotic to me, but also into the hearts of people just like the people in my town -- people like me. I would like to recommend this book to everyone, if only for the way it shows the common humanity of the world, but the book gives more than that. The stories and poems are all love songs to [...]


    5. Readings from Readings 2: New writing from Malaysia, Singapore and beyond, is a wonderful collection of work, comprising short pieces of fiction, non-fiction and poetry. The flavour is undoubtedly Malaysian (ok, and Singaporean) with sprinklings of other voices in between. I found that I preferred the local (or at least Asian) pieces more than the odd sprinkling of “Western” names that found their way into the book. For one, Marc de Faoite’s pieces on Night Fishing in Langkawi and The Milk [...]


    6. Every so often you discover by chance a writer or writers you’ve never heard of before, and I had this experience when I received a review copy of this book. It’s a compilation of stories and poems by a variety of mostly South Asian names, only one of which I had ever heard of.My way of reading “foreign” literature is to let it flow over me and make its impressions on me. When I read Tolstoy and Dickens in high school, loads of words and customs and concepts in their books were foreign t [...]


    7. A nice little medley of stories like a box of chocolates; some you like, some you don't.My favourite picks: Rani Taxis Away, Blue, KL Trilogy, Milking Pen, Waiting
