Oriental Readings Loved and Relished




***************************************************************************



About the Book: Yin Ling is engaged to, and eventually marries, Vincent, the most eligible bachelor in Singapore. And, being a Singaporean woman, family ties, duty, and Asian traditions, customs and beliefs, as well as her association with a wealthy, successful, politically active (hence public) young man, mean that she is under great pressure to conform. Ben Gallagher, a visiting American lecturer, radical, outspoken and divorced, plays the romantic male lead. Yin Ling meets him through her poetry and they fall in love. Yin Ling struggles with her conscience; Ben is eventually forced to leave Singapore for flouting social conventions; and so, Ben and Yin Ling are parted. So far, so conventional.

About the Book: A seductive and evocative epic on an intimate scale, that tells the extraordinary story of a geisha girl. Summoning up more than twenty years of Japan's most dramatic history, it uncovers a hidden world of eroticism and enchantment, exploitation and degradation. From a small fishing village in 1929, the tale moves to the glamorous and decadent heart of Kyoto in the 1930s, where a young peasant girl is sold as servant and apprentice to a renowned geisha house. She tells her story many years later from the Waldorf Astoria in New York; it exquisitely evokes another culture, a different time and the details of an extraordinary way of life. It conjures up the perfection and the ugliness of life behind rice-paper screens, where young girls learn the arts of geisha - dancing and singing, how to wind the kimono, how to walk and pour tea, and how to beguile the most powerful men.

About the Book: Five Charming Singapore girls and their lovable Mama-san worked in a comfort house set up by the Japanese Army in Cairnhill. At Nan Mei Su, or the House of Southern Beauties, the girls experienced exciting, beautiful, romantic and dangerous adventures.

Set during the Japanese Occupation, this poignant novel unfolds the loves and heartaches of the girls, as well as their brushes with the notorious Japanese Kempeitai, and their clashes with samsengs (gangsters).

About the Book: Set in Singapore in the early 1950s, The Bondmaid captures the special ethos of a wealthy and powerful Chinese household in that bygone era.




A little girl, Han, is sold as a bondmaid into the House of Wu, where she grows up with the young heir. But the idyll of childhood attachment quickly turns into a nightmare of thwarted sexual passion, as Han, beautiful, proud and uncompromisingly loyal, struggles against the forces of tradition and tyranny in a household where patriachs and matriachs wield inexorable power, lustful male relatives watch young bondmaids to claim their rightful share of pleasure and gods and goddesses smile to see the human drama unfold.
