Made in 10 minutes, yesterday afternoon, barely in time to get it to the printers. It has a charm I would not like to repeat.(Two days later.. I was scolded! Hurray!)
Sharlene Teo. Her talk was great. She talked about Singapore, read from her book. Story, sentence structure, insight, viewpoints and an agenda that is more lightbulb than bulldozer. Her book features a fictitious movie series about a Malay monster; a beautiful female who traps and mutilates men. I have yet to read it, but Ian McEwan calls it 'remarkable'. (Mental note to self: dig up the notes on Singapore-based artworks and texts that involve fictitious persons, books or organizations.

All of the above were in orbit around the Book Merah ebook giveaway/discount, held during the Hong Kong Book Fair.
