Available Now


A mother finds out her son is gay; a daughter finds out her two mothers are lesbians; a niece stumbles upon the body of her dead uncle dressed in his wife’s sarong kebaya; and an old man’s nascent feelings for a Filipino maid lead him back to his suppressed art. "The Man Who Wore His Wife’s Sarong", Suchen Christine Lim’s short stories of the unsung, unsaid and uncelebrated in Singapore, delve beneath the sunlit island’s prosperity and coded decorum. Her characters chip away prejudice and sculpt it into acceptance of the other. Previously published in part as "The Lies that Build a Marriage" (shortlisted for the Singapore Literature Prize 2008), this new collection contains five additional stories.
