Fiction Collections



Enter the world of Holden Heng, the not-so-lucky-in-love protagonist of this comic realist novel that documents social currents transforming the Lion City. Described as the most Singaporean of Singapore writers, Robert Yeo presents an immensely entertaining story of a typical Singaporean man’s escapades with three very different women. Will he ever find true love?


Reader Reviews:

“…an impressive Singaporean novel, humourously serious.”
World Literature Today

“The pace of Adventures is fast and the language is decorous. The depiction of Singapore and its social mores is incisive.”

“Holden Heng is a picaresque hero assembled in the flatted factory of third world fiction… In his parody of the penchant to imitate, Yeo is strikingly original.”

“Immensely entertaining…a frank and fun assessment of sexuality and relationships that still feels fresh today.”
The Sunday Times
