Intimating the Sacred:

Religion in English Language Malaysian Fiction

by

Andrew Hock Soon Ng

New. As English language fiction in Malaysia is a minority interest it's not all that surprising that novelists are often pre-occupied with the challenges which minorities face. The author bravely, but appropriately, studies not only how Islam, the religion of the Malaysian majority, is treated in such literature, but also the perceptions of such writers concerning minority religions practiced in the country. 281 pages. The contents include -

  • 1 - Visions of Possibilities: Religion and/as "Hospitality" in Lloyd Fernando's Novels,
  • 2 - Irony and the Scared in Lee Kok Liang's Fiction,
  • 3 - Hinduism and the Ways of the Divine: The Works of KS Maniam,
  • 4 - Contentious Faiths: Questioning Confucianism and Christianity in the Fiction of Shirley Lim,
  • 5 - Islam and Modernity in Contemporary Anglophone Fiction by Malay Writers.
  • There are also Notes, a Bibliography and an Index.
