A novel by

 
 
In A Far Country is a remarkable novel for its experiment. It moves beyond early Malayan writing in English which sought to establish a local literary imagination in opposition to an imposed colonial one. In A Far Country seeks to free itself from this literary ghetto by addressing national issues and departing from realism to do so.
