The secret gift of reading is time.


History of Amnesia

Alfian Sa'at




Unapologetic, unafraid and unyielding, Alfian’s collection of verse delves into reclaiming our collective history and memory.

In mining our psyche, he casts light where whispers and shadows lurk. He draws inspiration from censored histories, subsumed myths and invokes imagined voices from the exiled, demanding of the reader to witness the ubiquitous ideological fictions that surround us. 

This is one of the most dissonant and penetrating voices in Singapore poetry.
