Five million English-speaking Chinese, Indians and Malays live in Singapore today - an artificial port city created entirely by British traders in the 19th century. The Singapore-born, multi-lingual American writer Wena Poon describes herself and her fiction as an accident of history. She charts the 21st century journey of Singaporeans as they settle in the cities of New York, Los Angeles, London, Perth and Toronto. In her vivid stories, Poon captures the true urban sophistication of New Asia and the journey of an eclectic people coming to terms with their cultural legacy.
