“These poems are to be read aloud, to be returned to again and again, in order to extract the full pleasure they offer, the readers like bees to visit the nectar-filled and pollen-heavy lines.” — Shirley Geok-lin Lim, recipient of Commonwealth Poetry Prize and two American Book Awards

“An engaging gathering of promising talents, astute, perceptive, attentive to everyday, impressively accomplished in technique and mature in voice.” — Boey Kim Cheng, poet and author of Between Stations

“These poems are quintessentially Singaporean even as they touch universality. They satisfy the mind as much as they stir the heart.” — Koh Buck Song, author and editor of more than 20 books, including three volumes of poetry and four literary anthologies
