Sadaik Short Reviews: November 8th Diary

On November 8th 2015, Myanmar held its first democratic elections in a quarter of a century.  The literary freedom organisation PEN Myanmar sought to document this momentous day through literature … 

The result is a collective diary of leading writers (several of whom had been imprisoned for their literary activism), who, through essays, short stories and poetry intimately explore, dissect and reconstruct their personal emotions in the course of a day which many of us in West now look on, dangerously, with apathy.
