Medea is an expat wife. Orpheus is a club DJ. And Prometheus sells charsiew in Toa Payoh.
Figures from Greek mythology take up residence in contemporary Singapore in this collection of stories that explores the pain and dilemma of modern living. What happens when you are doomed to repeat your actions over and over? Or have to remake your decisions, knowing that times have changed? What if struggling makes the divine human, and the human divine?
Steve Jobs and Ulysses ride motorcycles together in the afterlife. The oral history of a latter-day siren's song is documented in a podcast. A Prime Minister makes a human sacrifice to deal with the political winds of change.
Told with humour, irony and compassion, these modern myths and ordinary epics remix familiar tales into instant classics.
