PANEL: The Problem with Singaporean Men

  • 71-77 Stamford Road Singapore, 178895 Singapore (map)

The 4th Epigram Books Fiction Prize Forum is titled The Problem with Singaporean Men: Exploring Representations of Men in Singaporean Literature. They've been called everything from ah beng to hapless beta-male — but do Singaporean men deserve the reputation they've been saddled with? And why are they written about like that? Just what is the problem with Singaporean men?

Spend an afternoon with the winning author and finalists from the 2018 Epigram Books Fiction Prize — Jo-Ann Yeoh, May Seah, Lu Huiyi and Anittha Thanabalan — as they decode the male species in this engaging discussion!

Moderating the forum is Simon Vincent, the author of The Naysayer's Book Club, a book featuring 26 conversations with 26 people who have striven against the odds to make a mark in Singapore with their causes and beliefs. Simon is a multimedia journalist who covered the 2015 General Election, and whose work has also appeared in various media outlets including Nikkei Asian Review, Mekong Review, The Middle Ground and Yahoo! News, among others.
