Marshall Cavendish Classics: They Do Return... But Gently Lead Them Back

  • Description
  • About the Author
  • A boy is given a girl’s name so that he can escape the attention of malignant ghouls. A devout Catholic priest is suspected of hanky-panky with a submissive Chinese wife when she gives birth to an albino child. A young girl student dies before her English examinations, but still manages to write an out-of-point essay for the Cambridge Syndicate. From societal superstitions and the imagination come these 15 tales of the paranormal.

    This title is being reissued under the new Marshall Cavendish Classics: Literary Fiction series, which seeks to introduce some of the best works of Singapore literature to a new generation of readers. Some have been evergreen titles over the years, others have been unjustly neglected.

  • Doyenne of Singapore’s literary circles and one of the leading figures in the world of Asian fiction, Catherine Lim is a household name to many Singaporeans. She has written over 20 books across various genres – novels, short stories, poems and satirical pieces. Lim has won numerous awards for her work, including the National Book Development Council awards in 1982, 1988 and 1990; the Montblanc-NUS Centre for the Arts Literary Award in 1998; and the 1999 regional Southeast Asian Write Award.
