- About the Author
Balik Kampung is a collection of eight new tales of home written by authors who have lived in their neighbourhoods for 10 years or more. A mysterious lighthouse in Marine Parade calls you home. A missing monkey in Changi recalls your carefree childhood. A red plastic bag in Nee Soon tells you who you truly are.
We invite you to read our stories, reminisce and return, once again, back home.
