Quick Overview

“A brave book in which Lloyd Fernando has crafted an imaginary, historically well-informed exploration of the meaning of independence for Singapore.”
Asian Cultural Quarterly


Availability: Out of stock


An exciting first novel set in pre-independence Singapore. Scorpion Orchid follows the lives of four young men—a Malay, an Eurasian, a Chinese and a Tamil—against a backdrop of racial violence and political factions struggling for dominance. Excerpts from classical Malay and colonial English sources appear throughout the narrative, illuminating the roots and significance of this period in history.
