Lion City

99,00 

Stories included in the Lion City collection are truly something else – speculative fiction from Singapore that will blow your mind. There’s a boy that decides to become an island. A man who gets silver rash. An airport terminal for gods of all religions. There’s also a story inspired by one of the local folktales. With each and every story, Ng Yi-sheng plays with the convention of what’s considered “normal” – he mixes the worlds of humans and gods, goes back in time and into the future, and gifts animals with human characteristics. It’s an amazing literary journey from which one can discern the issues faced by modern-day Singapore.

"I dialled for a cab. This was before Uber, so the voice said they'd only be there in twenty. In front of me, the Eggs Benedict had gone cold and rubbery. To pass the time, I ate it, masking the texture with gulps of orange juice and vodka."
