Track Faults and Other Glitches, Stories of the Impossible in Singapore by Nicholas Yong

Nicholas Yong has published his second book, Track Faults and Other Glitches, Stories of the Impossible in Singapore. It is a collection of 10 short stories. The journalist and author has a knack for details with vivid descriptions and a wild imagination that makes you want more.  It was hard putting the book down as it accompanied meon my travel journeys to Halong Bay last month. The paper back has been in bookstores since November 2016 and is retailing at S$18.60.

Nicholas makes the impossible seem so real by bringing his stories to life using environments and situations that we are all familiar of. It could be the government bureaucracies, MRT faults, supernatural encounters during army days or the kopitiam. The book is a good read and makes a great gift for your friends from Singapore living overseas. The use of Singlish colloquial here and there has given it a very local flavour.  In fact, the book may just make them feel home sick. There’s a somewhat feel good sort of sensation, reading Nicholas’s thoughts while being overseas.

This guy is talented la.
