LAUNCH: "Frontline Rescue", Lee Chuan Low

  • The Arts House 1 Old Parliament Lane Singapore, 179429 Singapore (map)

Based on real life events such as the collapse of Hotel New World and the Pulau Merlimau refinery fire, Frontline Rescue 《救灾前线》 comprises a collection of short stories by veteran civil defence officer Lee Chuan Low (李选楼). As Singapore’s first Chinese short story centred on disaster and crisis management, the book serves as a cherished record of significant events in Singapore history, while illuminating the unsurmountable spirit of human nature in face of adversity.

Lee Chuan Low is an award-winning writer and editor of numerous Chinese short stories, literary reviews and essays. He is currently the vice president of the Singapore Literature Society and serves as chief editor of the organization’s news bulletin. Lee is also a long-time member of several local and international literary groups such as the Tropical Literature & Art Club.
