The prodigious achievement of the Housing and Development Board in Singapore since independence furnishes the physical environment for Daren Shiau’s literary endeavours. Shiau’s novel, Heartland, was published by SNP Editions Ltd under their Raffles Imprint in 1999, and won a Commendation Award in the Singapore Literature Prizes the same year. Heartland was also voted one of the best reads of the year by The Straits Times newspaper. It was re-published by Ethos Books in 2002. The novel is a prescribed text for O-Level Literature in English in Singapore’s secondary schools for 2008.
