Remembering Salleh Ben Joned

On October 29, 2020, Malaysian literary and artistic icon Salleh Ben Joned passed away at the age of 79. Salleh was known for his powerful poetry and essays in both Bahasa Malaysia and English, and is also often referred to as a maverick and non-conformist for his works that challenged taboos about race, religion, sexuality, and so on. In many ways, he is also seen as being relatively underrated or unrecognised for his contributions to the local literary scene. We pay tribute to Salleh and his legacy, with poet and writer Bernice Chauly, and academic and writer Malachi Edwin Vethamani.
