Colony, Nation and Globalisation:

Not at Home in Singaporean and Malaysian Literature

by

Eddie Tay

New. This book analyses a wide selection of English literature written in and about Malaysia and Singapore both before and after independence. The particular focus of the study is aspects of this literature that expresses disconnection as a result of not being "at home where one should be." The author's literary sweep starts with Swettenham's 'The Real Malay', through Maugham and Burgess right up to Tash Aw and Vyvyane Loh. The 165 pages are divided into three parts, namely

  • I - Colony: British Malaya,
  • II - Nation: Malaya, Singapore and Malaysia and
  • III - Globalisation: Home is Elsewhere.
