A Monsoon Feast
A Monsoon Feast comprises seven short stories by renowned writers from Kerala, India and Singapore that provide deep insights on the various concerns and ways of life of both communities. The collection includes stories by well-known author Shashi Tharoor, the Commonwealth Writers’ Prize-winning author of 12 books, including The Great Indian Novel; and inaugural Singapore Literature Prize winner Suchen Christine Lim. A unique literary collaboration, A Monsoon Feast intimately connects the reader to the heart of two similar and yet different cultures.
Across the seas, the winds blow between two lands, whispering back and forth what is seen, heard, tasted, smelt, felt in each place: the green trees, the tropical heat, the lush rain, the peoples of enterprise and culture, the aromas of different flavours and more. A Monsoon Feast is the point at which these winds intermingle, their conversation celebrating the best of what Singapore and Kerala have to offer.
