In My Hands Today…

The Singapore Decalogue – Zafar Anjum

 

 In this collection of ten beautifully crafted, interconnected short stories, Zafar Anjum engages two commonplaces about Singapore: one, that it is a nation of immigrants; and two, that it is a nation still looking to sketch out the parameters and contours of its own soul.

Through Asif Basheer, a newly arrived immigrant from India, Zafar Anjum takes us through the complexities of present-day Singapore. As we follow Asif making his spiritual odyssey through a fast-changing Singapore, we are taken on an unforgettable journey of love, lust, hope and despair.
