商品介绍
Author/Editor: Shih-Li Kow
New Pb 240 pp.
Subject: Fiction
Condition: Good
Published: 2014

Stylish, subtle and funny, Kow is an amazing storyteller. The Sum of Our Follies is the story of characters living in a backwater town, LubokSayong, in a so called 'developing country' in Asia with no claim to fame apart from its annual floods, a dubious legend and general mediocrity, struggling with modernity; one that could be compared to the little towns and characters of Amado and Narayan, with just a touch of Calvino.

How a single mother, an engineer and a real estate manager with a fulltime day job finds time to keep writing at that level is amazing.

An extract:

“Call us Tim and Peggy,” they said. Mami kept getting their names wrong and she called them Tom and Jerry. I thought that she did it on purpose. I wondered if Tim and Peggy shared my suspicion. They wanted to know about the house. Everyone who came wanted to know about the house.

“My father built this house. He was an unnatural man,” said Mami.

“An unnatural man?”Mr Miller raised his eyebrows at his wife. They didn’t know that Mami used the word ‘unnatural’ a lot. They must have thought she meant her father was a perv.

“Yes, unnatural. Funny funny, you know. Not normal, not your usual father. He built this house for the loves of his life,” explained Mami. “He had many loves in his life, but the greatest were these four. The rest, he did not marry. More interestingly … eh … Jerry, was that these four agreed to marry him, considering he was not half as good-looking as your Mr Tom here. My father was as ugly as a monkey crossed with goat, but he was very charming. He could talk birds down from trees.”


Shih-Li Kow's short stories have appeared in several anthologies since her first publication in 2007. Her collection of short stories, Ripples and Other Stories was shortlisted for the 2009 Frank O’Connor International Short-story Award in Ireland, beating Ali Smith and Kazuo Ishiguro to the list. She currently works in real estate management and lives in Kuala Lumpur with her extended family, cat and beehive.

(Shih-Li Kow is an extremely shy person who values her privacy tremendously, although she's very gracious when invited by fans.)
