This is the first Matahari Books publication of the year, and it's already August. Gosh, we have slowed down!

Yes there will be only 3 books this year. I don't mind, because we want to spend a lot more time on each book. Plus, there's Fixi for me to do!

Growing up with Ghosts is creative non-fiction, something that I initially set up Matahari Books to specialise in. The story of Bernice Chauly's parents effortlessly becomes one of the stories that create this nation; it is about (to use the title of a previous book of hers) "going there and coming back". That it's a labour of love goes without saying. It is a quest and a valentine, and an emphatic statement of belonging.

It's also gorgeous! Flip through the pages by 'searching inside' here

The book will be in shops by the end of this month. If you'd like to order an autographed copy, do email Deadline this Sunday noon; free delivery within Malaysia.
