Images at the Margins: A Collection of Kuo Pao Kun's Plays
This volume, which brings together ten of Kuo Pao Kun's plays, provides a highly sensitive, critically inflected and sometimes "seismographic" account of the clashes between two distinct worlds – that of the English-educated Singaporean and his Chinese-educated counterpart. Although no perceptible violence arises from these clashes, there is almost always the daily abrasions of the soul. With an unflinching eye, Kuo Pao Kun – the marginal person between these two worlds – plumbs the soul for the conscience
