Equatorial Sunshine

Equatorial Sunshine - Wong Su Ann Initial thoughts: This book offers more than collection of poems — it also contains snippets of musings. These musings are laid out in prose but in a lyrical manner befitting a collection of poems. Heartfelt from the first to last word, Equatorial Sunshine was a joy to read, even when I recognised sadness that I've come to know all too well.

I think this is a gem of a book that has been added to Singapore literature. As much as the emotions expressed are universal, there are parts that are particular familiar to those who have grown up or lived in Singapore. This is such a delightful debut, I hope Su Ann will come to publish more in future with an even greater depth to her poetry.
