Superstars of Singapore Fiction
An evening at #AsiaLitFest celebrating some of the best contemporary Singaporean writing with three authors who have uniquely captured the essence of Singapore in their books.
A panel of three authors joined us for the #AsiaLitFest. The panel consisted of award-winning author Sharlene Teo, whose debut novel Ponti has received endorsements from the likes of Ian McEwan, author and journalist Cheryl Lu-Lien Tan whose Paul Theroux endorsed novel, Sarong Party Girls, spent 31 weeks on Singapore’s bestseller list, and Jing-Jing Lee whose debut novel, How We Disappeared, has received glowing reviews from publications such as the Financial Times and endorsements from writers such as Xinran.
The authors explored the different aspects of Singaporean culture that appear in their writing, including food, language and heritage, and also discussed the contemporary Singaporean literature scene.
With thanks to the High Commission of the Republic of Singapore for providing the Singaporean-inspired drinks and canapés.
