The Riot Act
by Sebastian Sim
Winner of Epigram Books Fiction Prize 2017
Questions abound in the aftermath of the Little India riot. The lives of three women intertwine when accident and coincidence collide. In Gimme Lao!-style hilarity, they become wrapped up in a web of truth, deception and political connections. This is a perceptive, fast-paced romp that asks “what if” of the riot that recently shook Singapore.
