Abstract:
床底下迷茫 (The mistiness under the bed) is one of Dr Wong Meng Voon (i.e. Huang Mengwen)’s most well-known micro novels. Set in Malaysia’s Pahang, it relates a story of villagers killing a wild pig thinking that it was going to attack them, only to discover that it was merely returning to its resting place when its piglets appear later. The story ends with the piglets trying to feed from their dead mother. This touching piece of work is also included in Wong’s self-selected compilation.
