By Loh Guan Liang
Snapshots of life in Singapore, captured in the form of astutely observed and lovingly written poetry.
SHORTLISTED FOR THE 2018 SINGAPORE LITERATURE PRIZE
Bitter Punch is Loh Guan Liang’s second collection of poetry. With a wry eye for the everyday and its often forgotten characters, Loh explores what it means to live and love in the city. Even as it depicts the tension between ourselves and the spaces we inhabit, Bitter Punch still seeks sweetness in life’s hard, bitter moments.
Read if you: are intrigued by the idea of beautifully written poetry about Ah Lians and BTOs.
