Please read The Virtues of Sin
the first of hopefully more reviews of my book. This one by Gabrielle Low is balanced and well-thought out. Am pleased that she managed to capture many of the nuances expressed in the book.


The Book of Sins is out!

February 10, 2008


Finally the book is out. It was launched at the ‘readings’ on 26th January at 67tempinis satu.

It’s retailing at RM 24 and should be available in fine bookstores in Malaysia by the end of February.

I am relieved that this is done, that this collection has finally come to and end.

Now, I can write more!

The exquisite cover design was done by Shahril Nizam, artist and designer, who also has a book of his own called “If Only”. He created the bird on the cover as it relates to one of the final poems in the collection.

My next reading will be at R A Fine Art on the 16th February at 5pm. It also coincides with the opening of an exhibition called “The Unknown”.

R A Fine Arts, No 6, Jalan Aman (off Jalan Tun Razak) KL.

See you there!

the word is supreme

above all

the word is precious

token of the sages

the word is held

carressed, eaten

consumated, exhumed


the word is not God

it is human
