From the playfully satirical pen of Catherine Lim comes the wild, weird and wacky world of O Singapore!
This is modern-day Singapore where the campaigns and directives of the unremittingly competent leadership come face to face with the undeniably human fads, foibles and follies of the local people. Using uniquely Singaporean traits as focal points, Lim takes us through the dizzying whirl of these merry collisions with consummate wit and comic inventiveness.
This title is being reissued under the new Marshall Cavendish Classics: Literary Fiction series, which seeks to introduce some of the best works of Singapore literature to a new generation of readers. Some have been evergreen titles over the years, others have been unjustly neglected.
Authors in the series include Catherine Lim, Claire Tham, Colin Cheong, Michael Chiang, Minfong Ho, Ovidia Yu, and Philip Jeyaretnam.
