The Hong Kong Writers Circle and the Singapore Writers Group present 23 stories that encapsulate the buzz and culture of their home cities.
“A tour-de-force of variety with cuttingly ironic views of foreigners seen from the viewpoints of cleverly appropriated local characters; pitch-perfect renditions of Hong Kong and Singaporean billionaires, gangsters, property managers, taxi-drivers and reluctant grave-digging progeny; and touchingly straightforward stories of the expatriate’s need to fit and find a home in these two supposed global cities.”
—Audrey Chin, author of As The Heart Bones Break, shortlisted for the Singapore Literature Prize 2014
“Whether you have never set foot in Hong Kong or Singapore or whether you have ridden the MTR and MRT a thousand times, pick up Tales of Two Cities. It provides a fascinating portrayal of the transformations, histories and mythologies of these two great metropolises.”
—Tammy Ho Lai-Ming, founding co-editor, Cha: An Asian Literary Journal
