A unique book in the world of Australian small press publishing, The Tiniest House of Time takes readers beyond domestic borders and Western history. Moving between the Tamil genocide in colonial Burma to the 90’s political tensions of Malaysia’s Reformasi movement and present-day Kuala Lumpur, this book explores how we continue to see history repeat itself even in its most heartbreaking forms. Reflecting on the long-term consequences of these eras, readers can see how dangerous our lack of knowledge about certain periods of history can be. If we don’t know it happened, how can we make sure we don’t repeat it?
