Abstract

A young woman journeys back to her birthplace, Singapore, and to Malacca, her ancestral home, to discover rich, complex and mysterious aspects of her own identity. Aspects of herself that have only been half remembered, hinted at, or understood during a dislocated childhood and adolescence growing up in contemporary suburban Australia.

‘The experiences of a woman caught between two cultures as she juggles life as a young adult with memories of her ancestors’ exotically quirky world … a mercurial imagination, a gift for satire and wry intelligence.’
