Product Description

This collection of short stories exposes the minuscule rebels trapped inside many of us – the obedient, law-abiding tenants – living in Singapore who are trying to break out of conforming to the country’s conservative social norms, risking stigma and gossip. On one extreme, a minority of us have the courage to let the recalcitrant rebels take charge from the beginning in order to live as we wish. Others may require some external nudging to act, yet some may ultimately still retreat to the status quo, to a prescribed acceptable social behaviour, instead of risking any fracas.
