These Foolish Things and Other Stories
Written by Yeo Wei Wei
In Yeo Wei Wei’s debut collection of stories, secret hopes, desires, and regrets are revealed through obsessions and events that collide and merge with everyday life.
A wife returns home to find that her husband has remarried… An old woman in a nursing home is visited by a mynah that sings a Beatles song… An artist remembers the time he was harangued by rambutans, mangoes and other fruits in his studio….
In crystalline prose suffused with a dark sense of humour, these stories offer glimpses of inner worlds that are sharp, strange, and haunting.
