The Economist reviews The Art of Charlie Chan Hock Chye (March 12 2016 Print edition)

“A touching, thoughtful meditation on Singapore’s relentless progress…. Like any other country, Singapore means different things to different people. Its detractors admit that modern Singapore is safe, well-run and has achieved remarkable material progress since it became independent just over 50 years ago. And even its defenders admit that Singapore restricts civil liberties… Sonny Liew’s brilliantly inventive “The Art of Charlie Chan Hock Chye” weighs those costs and benefits.”

  1. Woah! I was thrilled to see your book reviewed in The Economist. It’s the first time I have seen a novel I’ve read covered by the magazine.
