Little Ironies-Stories of Singapore

Author: Catherine Lim

This is my first book, the one that launched me on the road to authorhood. The 17short stories are about ordinary men and women living their ordinary lives, often with a determination that is no less than extraordinary - the woman desperate to have a male child to appease her tradition-bound husband, the young student who jumps to her death after her poor exam results, the savvy Singlish-speaking taxi driver who makes extra money looking out for male Caucasian tourists to take them to the city's brothels.
