Brian Yap's essay from New Malaysian Essays 1, which is called "The Trouble with Malaysia" is printed in full (minus the photographs, but including all the footnotes) in the February issue of Off the Edge magazine, which goes on sale today. Very timely considering elections are just around the corner. It takes up 9 pages, probably the longest single thing the magazine has ever published.
It's a terrific issue and includes a free, collector's-edition CD of contemporary Malaysian music, curated by Hardesh Singh and CH Lor; and a cover interview with Marina Mahathir.
I am off to France in a few hours, sans MacBook, and may not have time to post much on this blog until Feb 11. So Gong Xi Fa Cai and keep it goin' on.
