This writer won the Singapore literature prize twice This book was for 2015 That s why I picked up the translated version Not sure if translation did it in or not but the stories are dull It s a lament of the lives of Tamil women and their circumstance, blame and squabbling Maybe she wants to give an accurate description of Tamil society in Singapore which had many regressive family elements But the storytelling is weak You don t sympathise with any of the characters and the stories end abruptly without a finish You feel your invested time wasted It s a book I wanted to like but didn t.if you re interested in a book on a Tamil person in Singapore, read M Ravi s kampung boy Published at the same time, also shortlisted for the spore lit prize He should have won Far better read.
