520    "Dream and Swine and Aurora," "Deep in the Rubber Forest,"
       "Fish Bones," "Allah's Will," "Monkey Butts, Fire, and 
       Dangerous Things"--Ng Kim Chew's stories are raw, rural, 
       and rich with the traditions of his native Malaysia. They 
       are also full of humor and spirit, demonstrating a deep 
       appreciation for human ingenuity in the face of poverty, 
       oppression, and exile. Ng creatively captures the riot of 
       cultures that roughly coexist on the Malay Peninsula and 
       its surrounding archipelago. Their interplay is heightened
       by the encroaching forces of globalization, which bring 
       new opportunities for cultural experimentation, but also 
       an added dimension of alienation. In prose that is 
       intimate and atmospheric, these sensitively crafted, 
       resonant stories depict the struggles of individuals torn 
       between their ancestral and adoptive homes, communities 
       pressured by violence, and minority Malaysian Chinese in 
       dynamic tension with the Islamic Malay majority. Told 
       through relatable characters, Ng's tales show why he has 
       become a leading Malaysian writer of Chinese fiction, 
       representing in mood, voice, and rhythm the dislocation of
       a people and a country in transition.
