Gopal Baratham

The Collected Short Stories of Gopal Baratham

This exciting collection brings together thirty-nine of the late Dr. Gopal Baratham’s characteristic and revered pieces. In his usual blunt, strong and controversial style, Baratham’s socio-political critiques are ‘peopled’ by characters from virtually every background and class—with their frustrated hopes, wild illusions and excesses. Paired with a stylistic and evolving narrative voice, as seen in dialogue that fluctuates from poetic to quirky, this writer’s ambivalent medium is also his message. Readers are drawn into the depth of his work, and left with a sympathetic, sensitive understanding of events, people, actions and the complexities of relationships

    “Each of the stories, in diverse themes and techniques, is so superbly written that one wishes one would never finish reading it. … I should think that we ought not regard and judge Gopal Baratham’s work within the confines of so-called Singapore literature. Nationality is such a limiting concept.”
