A Luxury: Omnibus Edition
by Christine Chia, Joshua Ip and Cheryl Julia Lee
A Luxury: Omnibus Edition is simultaneously a time capsule and a time-machine. The first volume, A Luxury We Cannot Afford, bottled the lightning of poetry, prose and plays in 2015. The second, A Luxury We Must Afford, took a leap forward into the unknown future of Singapore. You will find something to please and pique every reader in this anthology.
New to this edition is an Afterword in the form of an essay by Prof. Koh Tai Ann. She explains the origin and context of Mr. Lee Kuan Yew’s frequently misunderstood remark “Poetry is a Luxury We Cannot Afford” and recounts his actual views on poetry and literature.
