If there ever is a book that the Singapore Tourism Board does not want published, Singapore Sucks! Is it. Tourists looking for the same old tired propaganda about a sterilised shopping paradise should go waste their money on government-owned dailies. Singapore Sucks! Is a bouquet of sarcasm, humour, insolent honesty and the discerning reader may even recognise a hint of patriotic fervour. Through an eclectic collection of short stories, essays and poems, our panel of largely Singaporean writers have captured and managed to convey the peculiar brand of insanity that can only be described as Uniquely Singapore. If you have ever wondered about Singaporeans' fascination with white culture, the Singlish vs. English divide or what exactly are those elusive "Asian values" our politicians keep trying to shove down our docile minds, then this book is a must-read for you.
