Summary
Every year, between 2011 and 2013, the Singapore Writers Festival invited eight Singapore writers to embark on a sobering journey <U+2013> to meet with a segment of Singapore<U+2019>s population whose plights and struggles in life are often left in the shadows. This special project was named Passages. From informal conversations with senior citizens at a hospice or their homes, low-income families trying to make ends meet, and former offenders who had spent time in prison, these writers were inspired to pen their original tales of hardship and heartbreak, often depicting how the human spirit can triumph over great adversities. This anthology compiles a selection of stories from all the three years of the project
