Abstract:
"This collection...spans more than thirty-five years of his work and traverses cultures as well as continents. Goh`s settings range from the wharfs at Singapore`s harbour to a backwater bar in Papeete, Tahiti, from a park in Halifax to the streets of Vancouver. His characters are unforgettable: Fely, a young woman from Ermita who sells her body to support her eight-year-old daughter; an old sailor who has solo-circumnavigated the globe; a Vietcong soldier who loses his family and finally his own life to the horror of the Vietnam war."--Back cover.
