Author: Catherine Lim

Encouraged by the warm reception of Little Ironies, I set out to do another collection of short stories. Once again, I present a succession of vignettes of ordinary people one meets with daily in the wet market, the bus stop, the groceries' store. The last story which provides the title for the collection, reflects and enduring theme in my short stories-the conflict between tradition and modernity, as seen when the uneducated, elderly woman, suddenly finds the temerity to rise against her intimidating English-educated, career-minded daughter-in-law, calling upon the Lightning God to strike her dead for committing the greatest sin-ill-treating the old.
