Shortlisted for the Singapore Literature Prize 2020 (English, Poetry)
This new poetry collection stands as a record of a friendship between two artists formed in the shadow of illness and mortality.
Using the renga and haiku as departure points, Wee wrestles with the limits of art and of the document even as he summons werewolves, ghosts, and other myths. Faces with the inadequacies of witness, An Epic Of Durable Departures moves towards the living in reverse time, opening with obituaries and ending with a renewed beginning.ISBN: 9789811151088
