Beyond The Sea by P. Singaram
(English version) translated by R. Karthigesu
P. Singaram’s Beyond the Sea is a classic of modern Tamil literature, and one of the few Tamil novels of its era to be set completely in Southeast Asia. R. Karthigesu’s excellent translation brings this work to an English-speaking audience for the very first time. The novel’s gripping wartime plot and its evocative scenes of everyday life in Penang continue to compel the attention. This beautiful new edition by Areca Books will be of interest to general readers and scholars alike.
