Praise for Best New Singaporean Short Stories: Volume One
“Singapore’s fiction revival is on track! Thirty-five years after Robert Yeo’s landmark curation of the best national stories of his time, the project re-begins with a fresh slate of short fiction that rightly welcomes several new names. Jason Erik Lundberg has done an outstanding job of choosing stories you will want to return to—like rooms in the head—for years to come!”
— Gwee Li Sui, author and illustrator of Myth of the Stone
“I recommend the Best New Singaporean Short Stories: Volume One, which showcases the best in contemporary Singaporean writing now, with a diverse multitude of local voices that tackle their subjects with tooth and claw, flair and finesse.”
— O Thiam Chin, fiction writer, in “My Book of the Year”, Singapore Poetry
