The Scholar and the Dragon
Kon, better known as a dramatist, sets her lively novel in the Singapore of the early 20th century amidst the Chinese expatriate community. A new arrival in town attempts to find his feet in business, but is soon drawn into community politics. The main issue of the day is the collapsing Chinese empire and whether it is still susceptible to reform or needs to be replaced by a revolutionary democracy. 233 pages.
