Singapore Literature reviewed by an Angmoh

Singapore Literature reviewed by an Angmoh

Asger Dauagbjerg

I am a Dane living and working in Singapore. I love to read, but sad to say I haven't read much Singapore literature in the past. I am however now, and I want to share my experience with you. So what does an angmoh (Singapore slang for a white man - or Westerner) think about different Singapore fiction books? In every episode I will review one book: what is it about, what do I think, and what in particular do I find interesting as a non-Singaporean.I have selected all books from The Straits Times article from Dec 2021 'The 50 greatest works of SingLit'.

This week's review book ‘Or Else, The Lightning God & Other stories’ is a great book.  Let me tell you why...
