Cover PhotoI immediately liked the Facebook page Lettres-de-Malaisie, especially since it had a copy of Trois Autres Malaisie among many other books on its photo page. Trois Autres Malaisie just had its fourth review, the first in a French magazine, too, Petit Futé. 
According to the about section, Lettres-de-Malaisie is "La littérature en provenance de Malaisie et de l'archipel malayophone, sous toutes ses formes et dans toutes les langues."

Check it out and like it, too.
