Not The Same Family is a collection of ten short stories that engage an array of families—both conventional and unconventional.

Though the families depicted in each narrative are expectedly different in circumstance, it is oftentimes through the honest, genuine dialogue between characters that we find the almost-too-familiar sense of home. Settings spanning from as far as Boston, USA and Perth in Australia to the local neighbourhoods of Singapore, Not The Same Family brings difficult issues confronting the modern Singaporean family to the forefront—navigating many facets of this volatile landscape we call family while uncovering the individual so often buried under its weight.

“Because Soh allows his stories to meander, we are given ample opportunity to appreciate, understand and even feel sympathy for some of these characters... on the whole, the stories are straightforward, set in ordinary, everyday contexts and what underlies these stories is the lure and pull of the ties that connect and bind the unit, the community, the phenomenon we call family.” - Carol Leon, Asiatic: IIUM Journal of English Language & Literature
