SQ21: Singapore Queers in the 21st Century
An Oogachaga Publication by Ng Yi-Sheng, edited by Jason Wee, published by Math Paper Press

First published in 2006, the groundbreaking collection of coming out stories was the first affirming non-fiction volume accompanied by real names and faces. Written in light, clear prose, SQ21 shows an unabashed straightforward honesty and finds inspiration in the lives of these ordinary Singaporeans.

Though a bestseller that won acclaim as The Straits Times non-fiction book of that year, SQ21 remained out-of-print for nearly a decade. This new reprint comes updates with fresh material – a new interview by Ng Yi-Sheng, and a new foreword by the editor Jason Wee.

A Book of Hims
by Ng Yi-Sheng, published by Math Paper Press  

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.

We R Family
edited by Grace Chia, published by Math Paper Press

Families come packaged in all shapes and sizes. At the heart of every family unit is love — or what passes off as love. 

A father and son bond over a loss — with wool. A myopic daughter sees her parents clearly for the first time. Two mental patients learn to coexist under the same roof. An American biracial dad finds moorings with his African adoptee. And a Kiwi mum in a mixed family grows roots in multicultural Singapore.

An anthology of eight unforgettable tales, We R Family celebrates the family in its colourful diversity from the whispers of homes in nameless cities to the metropolises of SIngapore, New York, Mumbai and Addis Ababa to the suburbs of Indiana and Connecticut. 

- paperback with cover flap: 130 pages
- product dimensions: 125 x 200 mm
- ISBN: 9789810999568
