As a person who doesn t read many literary journals or any at all, I suppose , Little Basket 2016 was an absolute break from my usual fare a complementary copy from the Malaysian booth at the London Book Fair, read in one sitting at the hostel bar while eating pizza which may have gotten on some of the pages, oops , and then thoughtfully deconstructed as I lay on my top bunk and contemplated sleep.This is a pretty dang good book Short story collections come in so many forms, but they alwa [...]
There s stuff here that didn t do anything for me but that s an anthology with different authors for ya Happily, there were stories that left an impression This is easily the best from Fixi Novo so far.
Some I liked, some I didn t Some I passed It s a good collection though.

A pleasant surprise Most of Fixi Novo s titles seem a bit too self consciously sensationalist this one has a happy cover design for once not featuring panties or phallic shapes The stories themselves are natural, unforced, thought provoking, and I recommend this based on its optimistic almost feel good realism This is where I say my faith in Malaysian writing has been restored.Not all great a couple of stories still rely on the clunky tropes of pontianaks and bomohs but overall refres A pleasant [...]
