Read full description of the books:
Featuring contributions from 39 contemporary writers who represent some of the finest creative talent in the four major literary languages in Singapore today (Chinese, Malay, Tamil, and English), this anthology features complex, diverse, and cosmopolitan literature that breaks monocultural expectations. Many of the internationally acclaimed works collected in this volume are available here in English for the first time, presented in fluent, sensitive, and culturally attuned versions. From a popular Chinese form of nonfiction to a magic realist short story to a long urban poem, all forms are on display in these examples of modern literary imagination from Singapore.
