Exile or Pursuit

by Chia Joo Ming


Exile or Pursuit tells the story of Hok Leong, whose family runs a won ton noodle stall in a food centre. It follows his experiences through school, national service (compulsory military service), and early adulthood, detailing in the process a distinct period in the Singapore socio-historical formation and experience.
