Product Description

In 2008, Ng Yi-Sheng won the Singapore Literature Prize for last boy, a debut collection which explored the poet's coming of age as a gay man. A Book of Hims is a spiritual sequel to this work, written with a voice that has grown older, but remains just as eccentric and reckless as before. Once again, he deals with the topics of male love and spirituality, recollecting current and past romances, odes to mentors and holy figures, as well as experiments with diverse poetic forms, including the haiku, the sonnet, the ghazal and the jueju. Heartfelt, surreal and evocative, these poems are a splendid addition to the growing body of Singapore literature.
