By the Book: Writing Salleh Ben Joned

Salleh Ben Joned has been described in many ways - maverick poet, bad boy of Malaysian literature, innovator of language, and by some detractors, even anti-Malaysian. Since his passing in 2020, there have been a number of attempts to memorialise him and capture his legacy, and "Salleh Ben Joned - Truth, Beauty, Amok and Belonging" comes from a very personal place - written by his daughter Anna Salleh, a writer and musician herself, the book looks back at both Salleh's life and his works. We speak to Anna about the process of writing the book, and her own journey through her discovery of her father's legacy.
