Abstract:
"From the Belly of the Carp is a dramatic collection of poetic portraits spoken by characters connected to the Singapore River. The varied and distinctive voices of boatmen, coolies, craftsmen, rickshaw pullers, traders and travellers, from Raffles to the present day, throng these pages. Telling vivid personal stories of challenge and change, of success and failure, they make Singapore`s past leap vividly to life" -- Back Cover.
