Ministry of Moral Panic


Winner of the Singapore Literature Prize for Fiction 2014
Longlisted for the Frank O’Connor International Short Story Award 2014
Selected by The Business Times as one of the Top 10 English Singapore books from 1965–2015

Heartfelt and sexy, Amanda Lee Koe’s stories encompass a skewed world fraught with prestige anxiety, moral relativism, sexual frankness, and the improbable necessity of human connection. Told in strikingly original prose, these are fictions that plough, relentlessly, the possibilities of understanding Singapore and her denizens discursively, off-centre. Ministry of Moral Panic is an extraordinary debut collection and the introduction of a revelatory voice.

This new edition features four variant covers in pink, green, orange and blue.
