Greek myths localised

The Greek Gods have arrived in Singapore! Mesa is an Expat Wife. Orpheus is a wretched Club DJ. And Prometheus sells #damngood Roasted Charsiew in Toa Payoh. Would the Almighty Zeus be the leader of the Lightning Party?


Figures from Greek mythology take up residence in contemporary Singapore in this collection of stories that explores the pain and dilemma of modern living. What happens when you are doomed to repeat your actions over and over? Or have to remake your decisions, knowing that times have changed? What if struggling makes the divine human, and the human divine?
