Happy National Day! And what better way to kick off this National Day long weekend than with a novel that’s based on the history of our dear old Singapore :)
2 autographed copies of The Punkhawala & the Prostitute are up for grabs.
Head to my IG post (https://www.instagram.com/p/CSRUtLznj2o/?utm_medium=copy_link) to take part.
The Punkhawala and the Prostitute
A story of two destitute souls, shipped to Singapore in the late 1800s. Oseki, an ingenue forced into prostitution as a karayuki … and Gobind, a deaf convict from India who serves his sentence as a punkhawala to a British hunter obsessed with killing Rimau Satan, a man-eating tiger of mythic proportions.
❤️ Written by my brother, Wesley Leon Aroozoo, this book is a Finalist for the 2021 Epigram Books Fiction Prize.
I remember being so intrigued by the stories & experiences of Oseki & Gobind when I helped to proof read my brother’s manuscript. And I can’t wait to re read this enchanting tale again once the book is printed.
It will hit the shelves in November, but be an early bird and pre-order it now from Epigram Books at 10% discount! All pre orders will include an autograph by Wesley. (Or You want my autograph also can hahaha )
