Yang Nakal-Nakal x O'Briens


Yang Nakal-Nakal is a compilation of Usman Awang's short stories and poems that have a certain cheekiness to it. It talks about, inter alia, young love, married people, politics and rakyat. The issues that are still discussed right now. It doesn't feel like it was written more than forty years ago. He was a true wordsmith. Sasterawan Negara pulak kan, of course he's good at doing that.

A very enjoyable read, over latte and sandwiches - because hipster cafes are too mainstream.
