Silverfish Books

This neighbourhood book-boutique has been stocking more than a decade’s worth of rare titles. The independent store features a well-edited mix of literature, classics as well as an offbeat local lineup so it’s not unusual to see a copy of ‘Allah Controversy’ next to contemporary names like Tash Aw and M Bakri Musa. Silverfish is also one of the leading publishers of Malaysian writing in English, and they regularly hold discussions for writers to ruminate about literature and their respective works. If you can’t find that famous out-of-print ‘The Other Malaysia’ by Farish Noor in mainstream bookstores, you’ll have better luck here (or they’ll order it for you).
