Inheritance by Balli Kaur Jaswal

A nation’s coming-of-age story, seen through the sharp lens of a traditional Punjabi family as it gradually unravels. Set in Singapore between 1970 and 1990 Inheritance follows the familial fissures that develop after teenaged Amrit disappears.

Although her absence is brief, she returns as a different person. Over two decades, as Singapore’s political, social and cultural landscapes change, the family’s attempts to cope with the shifts ­ those coming from outside and from within ­ lead to some disastrous consequences. With the traditional expectations of their country on the one hand, and their own volition on the other, Amrit’s family must avoid imploding.

How do we confront our legacies? How do we accept change? Inheritance is a universal story of family, identity and belonging.

Sugarbread by Balli Kaur Jaswal

Pin must not become like her mother, but nobody will tell her why. She seeks clues in Ma’s cooking when she’s not fighting other battles—being a bursary girl at an elite school and facing racial taunts from the bus uncle. Then her meddlesome grandmother moves in, installing a portrait of a watchful Sikh guru and a new set of house rules. Old secrets begin to surface but can Pin handle learning the truth?
