Across the seas, the winds blow between two lands, whispering back and forth what is seen, heard, tasted, smelt, felt in each place: the green trees, the tropical heat, the lush rain, the peoples of enterprise and culture, the aromas of different flavours and more. A Monsoon Feast is the point at which these winds intermingle, their conversation celebrating the best of what Singapore and Kerala (India) have to offer. "A Monsoon Feast" comprises seven short stories by renowned writers from Kerala and Singapore that provide deep insights on the various concerns and ways of life of both communities. The collection, featuring a foreword by author and poet Professor Kirpal Singh, includes stories by well-known author Shashi Tharoor, Commonwealth Writers' Prize-winning author of twelve books, including "The Great Indian Novel", and inaugural Singapore Literature Prize winner and popular author Suchen Christine Lim. Also featured are works by authors Felix Cheong, Jaishree Misra, O Thiam Chin, Anjali Menon and Verena Tay. A unique literary collaboration, "A Monsoon Feast" intimately connects the reader to the heart of two similar and yet different cultures.
