memandangkan KL NOIR ni adalah buku antologi berbahasa Hammerika, maka aku nak post entry kali nih menggunakan bahasa tersebut (yang dicuri dari dlm page FB).
When: Wednesday, February 27, 2013
Time: 8:00pm until 9:15pm.
Venue: Kinokuniya, KLCC.
KL NOIR: Red is the first of 4 volumes about the Malaysian capital city's dark side. It is published by Fixi Novo, the American-language imprint of Buku Fixi. There are 14 short stories and one essay about the seedy, the sinister and sometimes the spooky.
You will find murder, drug-dealing, kidnapping, sexual depravity, prostitution, celebrity secrets, suicides, academic rivalry, gangsters, police brutality, cannibalism, black magic, creepy rituals, political corruption and even busking. It's all totally fictional. Well, maybe the cannibalism is.
For this launch event, most of the 15 writers will be present. They will read short extracts & will be available to mingle & sign.
The book will of course be on sale for RM19.90.
