Malaysians get into 'Best Asian Short Stories' book on life as an Asian

Indian author and columnist Monideepa Sahu, also the editor of 'The Best Asian Short Stories 2017' anthology.

A father compelled to offer his accomplished but dark-skinned daughter in marriage to a stranger. An urban man forced to sacrifice who he is to become an alpha male. An elderly woman treats her niece to a grand feast, while remembering her own childhood during China’s Cultural Revolution.

These are very different stories, told by authors with different styles, from homes across Asia. But each draws us in, inviting us to consider new perspectives, explore unique narratives, and escape momentarily into a different world.
