Philip Jeyaretnam’s prose fiction has rightly attracted international as well as national attention. He has thus far published two well-reviewed novels, a linked collection of short stories, as well as individual stories and reflective essays. This substantial literary achievement is more remarkable, given his relative youth, the controversial political circumstances of his father, and his full-time career as a lawyer at the Singaporean Bar.
