Malaysian author K.S. Maniam, who helped shape local literature, dies at 78

The Skin Trilogy (1995) are regarded as important contributions to the Malaysian performing arts canon. On the academic front, Maniam worked in the English department of Universiti Malaya as a lecturer (from 1980-1985) and associate professor (1986-1997). In 2000, Maniam became the inaugural recipient of India’s Raja Rao Award for outstanding contribution to the literature of the South Asian diaspora. Last year, Maniam was honoured at the K.S. Maniam's Writing: A Celebration tribute, organised by the University of Nottingham’s School of English (in Selangor) and Maya Press. The event saw the launch of the collection KS Maniam Selected Works . “I feel great. Because they’re doing this in my own lifetime, isn’t it, and not after I’m gone. It’s a kind of double honour, that they recognised me while I’m still around, ” Maniam, known for his sharp wit, was quoted in an interview with The Star last March. "When one thinks of Malaysian Literature in English and post-colonial literature, K.S. Maniam will be in the foreground of that literary canvas. He’s among the most studied and researched Malaysian writers worldwide. His achievements received so much international recognition but none from our governmental literary institutions. He did not hanker for any. He wrote because he loved writing. His work will testify to the wonderful writer he was, ” says Professor Malachi Edwin Vethamani (University of Nottingham School of English), a friend and fellow writer. Author Saras Manickam paid tribute and praised the nature of Maniam's uncompromising work. "K.S. Maniam was among the most important and distinguished Malaysian writers, with not much official recognition for his work. His books are not an easy read; his eye was unerring and unsentimental, insightful," says Manickam. “A literary giant has left us. Rest in Power, KS Maniam, ” writer Bernice Chauly wrote in homage on Facebook. Maniam leaves behind his wife, son, daughter and two grandchildren.
