Co-Winner of the Singapore Literature Prize 2020 (Chinese, Fiction)
Black Panther is a collection of 10 short stories published in local newspapers, and some which were translated and published in overseas literary platforms. Spanning from the colonial period to the modern independent era, the themes of the stories place historical incidents into a fictional framework that depicts the everyday lives of Singaporeans. It is the author’s own "Singapore Story", similar to French philosopher Jean François Lyotard’s retelling of forgotten events and weaving them into the fabric of a generation.
