About This Book

Inspired by the example of eleventh-century Japanese author and court lady Sei Shonagon, Jee Leong Koh collects his miscellaneous jottings in his own pillow book. Written in the genre called zuihitsu, which compromises both prose and poetry, these observations, lists and anedotes on life in Singapore and New York are, in turn, humorous, reflective, satirical, nostalgic and outrageous. They were penned for the author's own amusement. Perhaps they will amuse you as well.
