AAS Member Benefit – Free Author Event at The American Club
Yeoh Jo-Ann doesn't eat vegetables, drinks far too much coffee, and exercises far too infrequently. Growing up, she dreamt of becoming a cat, or a rock star. Instead, she worked in publishing for eight years, ended up being features editor at a magazine at some point, then gave that up for a career in digital marketing. Her fiction has been anthologised in We R Family, In Transit, and Best New Singaporean Short Stories. Her first novel, Impractical Uses of Cake, won the 2018 Epigram Books Fiction Prize. Jo-Ann still dreams of becoming a cat.

And then, quite by chance, Sukhin meets a homeless person, someone he used to know, and his well-planned existence is thrown into chaos.
