A Book of Hims by Ng Yi-Sheng

In 2008, Ng Yi-Sheng won the Singapore Literature Prize for last boy, a debut collection which explored the poet's coming of age as a gay man. A Book of Hims is a spiritual sequel to this work, written with a voice that has grown older, but remains just as eccentric and reckless as before. Once again, he deals with the topics of male love and spirituality, recollecting current and past romances, odes to mentors and holy figures, as well as experiments with diverse poetic forms, including the haiku, the sonnet, the ghazal and the jueju. Heartfelt, surreal and evocative, these poems are a splendid addition to the growing body of Singapore literature.

'Others' is Not A Race by Melissa De Silva

While having existed in Singapore as long as any other community, Eurasians, who comprise less than one percent of the population, still remain a fairly obscure group to many Singaporeans.

'OTHERS' IS NOT A RACE is a tapestry that weaves together the multiple genres of narrative fiction, creative nonfiction, literary food writing and family memoir, to offer insight into the micro-minority Eurasian community through the intensely personal lens of the writer's own experience living and growing up as a Eurasian in Singapore. Throughout are interwoven the themes of memory, loss, language, identity and cultural reclamation.

What Happened: Poems 1997-2017 by Alvin Pang

This Selected Poems surveys Alvin Pang's oeuvre over the past two decades, and includes significant new, previously unpublished material. Singapore's 2005 Young Artist of the Year for Literature, Alvin Pang is active internationally as a poet, writer, editor, and translator. He has authored over a dozen books, including several anthologies of Singaporean literature. His poetry has been published worldwide in more than 20 languages.
