Shahnon has written a number books, one of the most notable being Shit @ PukiMak @ PM (1999), a controversial political satire. The book makes allegorical references to the ruling coalition government, Barisan Nasional (BN), its major component party, United Malays National Organisation (UMNO), and former Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir bin Mohamed. There were attempts by the government to ban this book and to strip Shahnon of his literary title.
