Read full description of the books:

“What haunts me is not the ghosts that reputedly roam the second floor of the E&O Hotel, but the 44-year-old hawker who got buried under the road that we’re speeding across...”

The phrase “right of the soil” refers to the unconditional right of a person born within the territory of a country to be conferred citizenship. In this collection of 22 poems, Singapore poet Yong Shu Hoong explores final resting places and issues of belongingness and birthright, even as the city-state marks its 50th year of independence.
