Who Wants to Buy a Book of Poems?

Written and drawn by Gwee Li Sui

From Back Cover:

“[His style is] irreverence. Gwee deftly dishes out rhyming couplets in the guise of ancient, wise Chinese proverbs. Bursting with Seinfeldian, laugh-a-sec throwaways, the writer’s a serious hoot. Seriously.”

Yeow Kai Chai, 8 Days

“Read it and weep. Have a chuckle. Take yourself a little less seriously and maybe see more clearly. Enjoy the book. And — if you have the means — prove him wrong and buy it. Don’t be scared.”

Alvin Pang, The Straits Times
