By the Book: Melissa De Silva says “‘Others’ is Not a Race”

As part of the Swadaya X George Town Literary Festival series of virtual events, we moderated a session with Singaporean writer Melissa De Silva on her book ‘Others’ is Not a Race. The conversation was a heartfelt and intimate one about Melissa’s Eurasian heritage, what it means to write about identity, and, as is often the case when Malaysians and Singaporeans converge, food. This is an edited version of the talk, which was hosted by Gerakbudaya.
