Little Ironies Stories of Singapore Writing in Asia Series Now this is how you tell stories Each time when journalists ask me who is my idol in literary world Catherine Lim name will always be mentioned Was first introduced to her work by a Singaporean friend and i will pick up anything by Catherine Lim when i was bored in Brunei I loved Little Ironies Lim has taken experiences and observations from her years in Singapore and has masterfully constructed them into windows into the complexities of humanity Lim approaches each person and situation with as much objectivity as I have ever read I can't wait to read the rest of her work On A Little Street In SingaporeOn a little street in Singapore the Ugly One’s body was dragged out of the Singapore River and on another little street in Singapore the children ate the offerings that were supposed to be for their deceased sister This is such an unassuming little book with a dated cover and grainy picture and it is a perfect fitting for the saying that you should never judge a book by its coverCatherine Lim comes from a generation when Singaporeans first started to write about themselves with greater intensity Old enough to remember the not so good old times yet able to translate these memories into brilliant stories Lim paints a picture of a Singapore which is no a Singapore which was in transition a Singapore which grew up too uickly The essence of everyday futilities worries and anxieties are captured with such clarity and this has the effect of the stories coming to life in the theatre of your mind The stories are not particularly happy ones but indeed they are uite ironicI cannot express my self any better but I simply loved these stories and I am lending this wee little book left right and centre and all I receive are positive reviews A little gem of brilliant story telling Nostalgia — a probing bittersweet ache for a particular moment in the past This book has evoked a gush of childhood memories for me Suddenly I’m transported to the exact moment when my eye was caught by cover design of this very book nestled among hundreds of others on the shelves of Parkway Parade’s MPH bookstore I thought wow this old lady on the cover looks a lot like my late ah ma She looks lonely tired and sad But strong in spirit Just like my ah ma I scrambled for whatever pocket money I had and bought the book Over a decade later I chanced upon this title in my local library and saw it as a sign from above to read this little treasure again While the stories were uite dated set in the 1970 80s in Singapore Catherine Lim proves to be a master in crafting down to earth soulful short stories that resonates with the local community in Singapore The sensitivity in her writing is a mark of keen observance and deep compassion for the heartlanders And that makes a timeless piece of writing Kudos to one of the greatest local writers of all time Literary snapshots of Singaporean everyday life with a recurring
