 Synopsis

“As I packed... I began to realise that what I really wanted to bring could not be packed.” Journeys is a collection of 12 timeless short stories and essays written by Minfong Ho over two decades and three continents. Set in the various places where she lived and worked, these compelling pieces describe the journeys – both physical and emotional – undertaken by an intriguing array of people, from Cambodian refugees in upstate New York to a young windsurfer in Singapore.

Marshall Cavendish Classics

This title is being reissued under the new Marshall Cavendish Classics: Literary Fiction series, which seeks to introduce some of the best works of Singapore literature to a new generation of readers. Some have been evergreen titles over the years, others have been unjustly neglected.
