Once again, Monsoon are partnering with GoodReads to offer readers in the UK the chance to win one of 10 copies of our new book, The Man Who Wore His Wife’s Sarong by Suchen Christine Lim.
The book can be described as a collection of stories of the Unsung, Unsaid and Uncelebrated in Singapore.
“A mother finds out her son is gay; a daughter finds out her two mothers are lesbians; a niece stumbles upon the body of her dead uncle dressed in his wife’s sarong kebaya; and an old man’s nascent feelings for a Filipino maid lead him back to his suppressed art. This book delve beneath the sunlit island’s prosperity and coded decorum. Her characters chip away prejudice and sculpt it into acceptance of the other.”
Previously published in part as ‘The Lies That Build a Marriage’ this new collection contains five additional stories.
The GoodReads Giveaway runs from the 8th November through to 24th November 2017.
