Beng Beng Revolution
Finalist for the 2018 Epigram Books Fiction Prize
Beng Hock and his brother, Beng Huat (who prefers to go by Archibald), find themselves navigating a tumultuous Singapore in the near future that has run out of oil and gas. Running afoul of the growing gangs could mean slavery or death, jobs are scarce and food scarcer, and home is a crumbling shanty-town behind the City Hall Steam-Engine Station.
And as if these changes aren’t drastic enough, a great power awakens inside Beng Hock, and he must learn how to control it before it destroys everyone and everything in his way.
Praise for Beng Beng Revolution
"Lu, a writer to watch, is capable of dexterous prose despite the occasional incongruous Anglicism ("kip for the night", for instance)."
— The Straits Times
