The Merlion and the Hibiscus: Contemporary Short Stories from Singapore and Malaysia

Michelle A. Edwards

Book cover

Overall this was a pretty strong collection of short stories, with only one or two that I thought were bad and a few that were really superb. The standouts for me were “My Cousin Tim” by Simon Tay and “Surja Singh” by Lloyd Fernando–I’ll definitely be looking for more books by these authors.

My Goodreads rating: 3 stars
