The Colin Cheong Collection


Prolific writer Colin Cheong brings together three classic novellas and 23 short stories in this first-ever collection. Written in the 1990s, each story reflects his prowess as a storyteller. He is known for his sensitive and skillful articulation of some universal human themes — the pain of rejected love, the frustration and anticipation of being ‘almost adult’, the rites of passage to adulthood, and man’s need for woman. 

This collection comprises: 
Seventeen (novella, published 1996) 
Poets, Priests and Prostitutes (novella, published 1990) 
The Man in the Cupboard (novella, published 1999) – won the Merit Award, Singapore Literature Prize 1998
