Nazi Goreng: new novel opens up Malaysia’s hardcore punk scene
“Nazi Goreng” is an intense coming-of-age novel set in the punk music scene in Malaysia.
The racially-fuelled violence of the Kuasa Melayu —a neo-Nazi inspired movement proclaiming the superiority of the Malay race and rooted at the fringe of Malaysia’s punk music scene —is the tip of a social horror that unfolds in “Nazi Goreng”, as a naïve teenager is drawn into the drug trade and related corruption that pervades Malaysia’s backstreets and police ranks.
Author Marco Ferrarese is a former punk rock guitarist, now travel writer based in South East Asia.
Singapore hardcore punk label, Prohibited Projects, describes “Nazi Goreng” as “a gripping tale of a misled youth in Malaysia, embracing misguided fascist ideology.”
Louder than War posted a review yesterday saying Marco’s novel “admirably combines the distinguishing qualities of travel writing, subcultural insight and thriller genre.”
“Nazi Goreng” is available in paperback in South East Asia and as an ebook from amazon / kobo / iBooks/ BN.com etcBack to news overview
