The Minorities


by Suffian Hakim
published by Epigram Books


Meet the four misfits living in one HDB flat. 

One is a Malay–Jew who is trying to get his father to come back as a ghost. Cantona is a promising Bangladeshi artist on the run from a construction company. Tights is a Chinese illegal immigrant with a Forrest Gump obsession. And Shanti is a gifted Indian lab technician hiding from her abusive husband.

When a forlorn pontianak begins haunting them, the four friends find themselves embroiled in a surreal showdown that may just upend the world, or at least Singapore.

Written in Suffian Hakim's trademark humour, The Minorities is a novel about those living on the edges of society and their soulful bond.
