Save the date! Meet and greet Jolene Tan, author of A Certain Exposure, at Books Kinokuniya Singapore (391 Orchard Rd., #03-09/10/15 Ngee Ann City) on Saturday, May 17 at 3:30pm. Yours truly will be hosting.
From the flap copy: “Satirical and sympathetic, political and personal—A Certain Exposure traces the adolescent years of twin brothers Andrew and Brian, culminating in the explosive events leading to Andrew’s tragic death. This is a classic coming-of-age tale of two vividly individual brothers, both of whom struggled to navigate a complex tangle of relationships and coercive forces, cinematically interwoven with the yearnings and fears of an ensemble of mothers, fathers, cousins, friends and lovers—both false and true.
“This wide-ranging debut of Singaporean author Jolene Tan beautifully presents the resonances and the ghosts of lost possibilities, as well as a gripping story of hope and betrayal.”
