"A Field Guide to Supermarkets in Singapore", Samuel Lee


Poetry, 61 pages
Published by Math Paper Press, 2016

Shortlisted for the 2018 Singapore Literature Prize (English Poetry)


A Field Guide to Supermarkets in Singapore is a 19th century reference book (on philology? art history? anthropology? nobody remembers) that fell into a tropical swamp and was rescued, then lovingly restored, by a nice lady in curlers.

Caked in organic matter too dense to scrub off, the pages of Samuel Lee's debut collection reveal visions and premonitions of a city filled with characters engaged in their own private sorrows, both minute and expansive. To read him is to be lost in the aisles of millennia.

About the Author:

Samuel Lee's writing has been published in A Luxury We Cannot Afford (Math Paper Press, 2014) and the Yale Literary Magazine, and has also been adapted for a choral work by Eric Banks. His is a member of the young poets' collectives Image-Symbol Department and Burn After Reading (Singapore).
