THE SUM OF OUR FOLLIES
by Shih-Li Kow
published by Silverfish Books
Stylish, subtle and funny, Kow is an amazing storyteller. The Sum of Our Follies is the story of characters living in a backwater town, LubokSayong, in a so called 'developing country' in Asia with no claim to fame apart from its annual floods, a dubious legend and general mediocrity, struggling with modernity; one that could be compared to the little towns and characters of Amado and Narayan, with just a touch of Calvino. How a single mother, an engineer and a real estate manager with a fulltime day job finds time to keep writing at that level is amazing.
