The Earnest Mask
Xi Ni Er
A translation into English of a collection of nearly 70 pithy short stories by a prize winning Singaporean author. His style frequently mixes witty observation into otherwise grim tales, for example a boy's sole contact with his father being a weekly meeting at McDonalds or an employee trying to cure his boss suffering from tumors. The stories also are shot through with themes of coping with change against a backdrop to a rapidly developing city. 190 pages.
