Malacca Boy


Katherine Sim

Katherine Sim started writing this novel when she and her husband lived for two months in a Malay village in order to prepare for their Malay language examinations just after World War II. The story follows the life of Hassan, the result of an Indian-Malay marriage, as he negotiates village life both before and after the war only to eventually find the love of his life. Sim was also a well known artist of the time, so her novel is interlaced with evocative descriptions of village life and its surrounding scenery. Good Hardback First Edition 288 pages.
