The Coffin That Wouldn't Bury and Other Stories

The Coffin That Wouldn't Bury and Other Stories



Welcome to this collection of 20 short stories where newscasters avoid starting debates, business travellers live for travel, permission is needed to be someone and characters walk off the plot while a purple haze envelopes Singapore and angels bide their time.


About the Author

Jeffrey Lim writes about anything that preoccupies him. He is married and lives in Singapore. Besides Faith & Lies (1999), Jeffrey has also published short stories in other collections.



"The X-Files comes to Singapore in Jeffrey Lim's second collection of short stories, where he continues his assault on reality, blurring the distinction between insanity and imagination, reader and writer, character and narrator..."
