I’m releasing my new book “Without” on 5 September, and would like to invite you to a little launch party I’m having at naked Hub@New Street. There’ll be readings, drinks, canapes, and a lucky draw.
Look forward to seeing you then!
Here’s a little preview of the book:
What’s missing in your life? What keeps you up at night? What will make you happy? What will make you whole? These are the things that the stories in Without explore.
“Like Graham Swift’s ‘Last Orders’, Koh Morollo’s work offers a timely, heartfelt reminder that there is no such thing as an ordinary life. Stripping away the misleading and sometimes grubby veneer, she examines the lives of forgotten people, neglected souls navigating complicated, messy, unpredictable lives, often struggling to find the right path. ‘Without’ takes readers on that complex, emotional journey, guiding us through with wit, warmth and, most importantly of all, empathy.” – Neil Humpreys, author of Singapore best-seller Complete Notes from Singapore
“Short story lovers will find much to enjoy in these evocative tales. The settings are varied, but there’s a rich, consistent literary tone that makes it a great summer read.” – Nury Vittachi, journalist, and author of The Feng Shui Detective series.
“Transcending geographical boundaries, these stories cast deft and compassionate glances across swaths of emotional terrain, zooming in on relationships in deeply poignant ways.” – Cyril Wong, award-winning poet, and author of Ten Things My Father Never Taught Me and Other Stories
“These are stories I would have liked to write. Set in countries like Hong Kong, the UK, Canada and Greece, they sparkle with arresting characters, authentic dialogue, and accurate and evocative sense of place. An impressive debut.” – Robert Yeo, Southeast Asia literary pioneer, and author of The Adventures of Holden Heng
