A Literary Evening with Yeoh Jo-Ann (postponed)

A Literary Evening with Yeoh Jo-Ann

Yeoh Jo-Ann doesn't eat vegetables, drinks far too much coffee, and exercises far too infrequently. Growing up, she dreamt of becoming a cat, or a rock star. Instead, she worked in publishing for eight years, ended up being features editor at a magazine at some point, then gave that up for a career in digital marketing. Her fiction has been anthologised in We R Family, In Transit, and Best New Singaporean Short Stories. Her first novel, Impractical Uses of Cake, won the 2018 Epigram Books Fiction Prize. Jo-Ann still dreams of becoming a cat.

Impractical Uses of Cake
Impractical Uses of Cake is about Sukhin, a man whose life is going well - and yet it isn't. He's bored, he's dissatisfied, and his problem is one that most of us face - we want something more than plain old existence, but we struggle to understand exactly what that something is. And then, quite by chance, Sukhin meets a homeless person, someone he used to know, and his well-planned existence is thrown into chaos. There's quite a bit of cake in the novel, too - and perhaps far too much tea...


Registration and walk-ins are welcome.
