THE BEATING AND OTHER STORIES
by Dave Chua
published by Ethos Books
A mysterious tiger roams in the shadows of an apartment block. A security guard comes to terms with a past scarred by his father's attachment to violence. A woman traces her family's path of gradual change that began with her teenage pregnancy. A massacre on an island prison brings to life a forgotten strand of an island nation's history.
The Beating and Other Stories is a long-awaited collection of short stories by award-winning writer Dave Chua, author of the novel Gone Case. The book frequently crosses genres and styles, spinning from historical fiction to magical realism, and takes us on adventures with a distinct melancholic undertone. Sparse but emotional, these stories continue to demonstrate Chua's talent in exploring the intense inner environments of hyper-urban Singapore.
