About This Book

In 2015, the anthology A Luxury We Cannot Afford commemorated 50 years of man-made myth - 50 years of mysteries and ministries, Marxists and memorandums, the Merlion and The Man - and whether the 1969 assertion that "poetry is a luxury we cannot afford" still held true in the 2010s. Instead of looking back, this companion volume to the first looks forward to everything SG51 and beyond. It is a collection of bold narratives of Singaporeans shaping their own future, a cornucopia of hyper-modern dreams of robots and aliens, yet also tales of muted despair at a future slipping out of touch with the past.
