Description

An anthology of stories from the Singapore Writers' Group, Rojak is a perfect mix of short stories for both the adventurous and the armchair traveller alike. So pack your suitcase, sit back and enjoy the trip. Jump aboard a patrol boat guarding the seas around Singapore or, for the intrepid, how about a ride across the globe from an otherworldly frozen north, to a wintery day in England and then on to Italy for a train trip with Radinka? Meet an embarrassed teen in Africa, and make your own discoveries in the Americas. These are stories of love and bewilderment, friendship and falsehood, dirty deals and generosity, life changing moments, sadness and joy, and much much more.....
