TUMASIK : Contemporary Writing from Singapore
edited by Alvin Pang
This volume features contributions from thirty-nine living Singaporean writers, who represent but a
sampling of some of the fine creative talent at work in the four major literary languages in
Singapore today, i.e. Chinese, Malay, Tamil and English, many are translated in English for the
first time. Its many voices do not conform to monocultural expectations: they swim between
tongues, vernaculars, conventions and codes.
