View sample pages.

Here and Beyond: 12 Stories is a prescribed Cambridge GCE O-Level Literature text.

This is an anthology of twelve stories from twelve unique Singaporean voices: S. Rajaratnam, Yeo Wei Wei, Goh Sin Tub, Simon Tay, Stephanie Ye, Alfian Sa’at, Suchen Christine Lim, Wena Poon, O Thiam Chin, Claire Tham, Philip Jeyaretnam and Felix Cheong.

These stories chart the emotional ups and downs of protagonists who strive to find meaning against the backdrop of negotiations between the local and the global, between the past and an ever-changing, urbanised present. Rediscovering the self and the value of relationships form the focus of these tales, which range from the realistic to the surreal, with the occasional epiphany about one's mortality and the meaning of existence within the bustling city.

Reviews

"This anthology is weighted by dark and pessimistic pieces of fiction however the writing shines brilliantly. The collection shows not only the excellent quality but the disparate voices of... some of Singapore's best and well-known writers. This anthology also contains extensive explanatory notes, biodata and study notes to make these stories accessible to a larger audience." - R. Chapman, Goodreads reviewer
