Letter to My Father: Words of love and perspectives on growing up from sons and daughters
- About the Editor
What would you tell your father if you wrote him a letter? Perhaps what you have always wanted to say, but never could. Perhaps things you would like to thank him for, but never had the chance to. Or perhaps sort out disagreements you wished had been resolved more amicably. Heartfelt and moving and full of vignettes about their growing up years, these letters by our contributors show us the pivotal role the father figure plays in their children’s lives.
Contributors include: Margaret Thomas, Sadie-Jane Alexis Nunis, Christina Thé, Louis Tang, Alvin Tan, David Kwee, Hoh Chung Shih, Wong Ting Hway, Chee Soo Lian, Natalie Ng, Charmaine Leung, Crispin Rodrigues, Jacintha Abisheganaden, Kelvin Tan, Usha Pillai, Andrew Koh, Patrick Sagaram, Loh Guan Liang, Sarah Voon and Koh Jee Leong.
