Last Three Women
by Koh Beng Liang
A zany mix of Beat, Pop and MTV, Koh’s poems side-step the ready path of lyrical sentimentality. His sharp, often barbed and witty observations about people we know from mass media, modern metropolis, women and inane things verges on caricature, satire and irony.
Reflecting the concerns and non-concerns of the “now” generation,Last Three Women zooms in on a world that can be ridiculous and unsettling. A delightful debut collection.
