Viji Krishnamoorthy’s debut novel, 912 Batu Road, is a journey of love, war, and forgiveness. It threads fact, fiction, and family in a story that explores World War II and contemporary Malaysia: the best and worst of it. Her personal anecdotes are interwoven cleverly throughout the novel, giving the reader a window into her life and perspective. The book started as a singular chapter that Viji handwrote as a gift for her husband’s birthday, which through his persistent encouragement, birthed what is now her debut novel.
