Braving Life is Md Mukul Hossine’s much-anticipated second volume of poetry. In this powerful new collection, unchanging in its trademark emotional bravery, his verses continue to enlighten and inspire readers with their unflinching but always understanding gaze at the life of a migrant worker. Informed by his dedicated volunteer work at Healthserve’s medical clinic, Mukul’s voice, not commonly heard, shows us a Singapore not often seen.
Written in his mother tongue, Bengali, Braving Life has been lovingly and beautifully translated by Swagata Sen Pillai and transcreated by Cyril Wong. It is published by Healthserve.
Come join publisher Ethos Books for the release of this book at Nanyang Girls High School, hosted by Dr Goh Wei Leong.
