Classic SG Novels Republished for a New Generation October 04 2011
What was it like putting together a series of pioneering local novels for re-publication for our series Singapore Classics? The experience was nothing short of amazing. We really loved working with literary icons Robert Yeo, Stella Kon and Andrew Koh—these seminal writers have impacted our literary scene with their works, yet remain so humble and easy-going. And it was a true pleasure working with Mrs Goh Poh Seng and her sons, as well as Lloyd Fernando’s daughters, who painstakingly proofread and helped us put together their loved ones’ works for re-publication.
The following titles are now available:
- Scorpion Orchid by Lloyd Fernando
- The Immolation by Goh Poh Seng
- Glass Cathedral by Andrew Koh
- The Scholar and the Dragon by Stella Kon
- The Adventures of Holden Heng by Robert Yeo
All books, whose covers feature portraits of the authors by local artists, are available at major bookstores for $17.90 each. A limited edition box set of all five titles will soon be available for $79.90 and will make an excellent gift for book fiends in your life. Take these beautifully designed books home and support great local literature!
