Hook & Eye: Stories from the Margins

Publisher: Ethos Books

“Each story invites readers to enter into the world of marginal yet strangely familiar figures, to explore the possibilities of empathy, and thus to see familiar landscapes in a new light.” —Philip Holden, editor

These stories are set in disparate locations in Singapore, ranging from landed properties to migrant worker dormitories, and speak of struggles and persistence. And love.
