Sypnosis
¡°This collection is a magnificent necklace, every article in it, a pearl. Ignatius embraces local life to the max, but keeps an eagle¡¯s perspective. Jolting our memories at every turn, we will appreciate ourselves differently afterwards.¡± - Otto Fong, author, cartoonist, playwright and blogger ¡°From a flood of memories and pop culture commentaries to national issues, his essays are articulate, warm and relatable to the times that defined us. Re-reading his columns in this collection thrills like a long overdue meeting with a confiding friend. Insightful, occasionally poignant but never without humour. Life is a Mixtape is a charmer.¡± - Ng Peng Hui, managing director, Warner Bros Singapore When Ignatius Low quit his civil service job and joined The Straits Times as a business reporter in 1999, never in his wildest dreams would he have thought that he would end up writing fortnightly personal columns in the Sunday newspaper on music, love, life and his many trivial obsessions. Life is a Mixtape is a collection of his best columns from over more than a decade, telling the story of a Singapore boy who grew up in the ¡¯80s. From pirated cassette compilations to secondhand vinyl records, shady Sim Lim Square shops to Zouk¡¯s dancefloor, Ignatius takes readers on a nostalgic tour of familiar memories. He muses about old friends and growing relationships, ponders Singapore society and the meaning of travel ¨C and waxes lyrical about Bras Basah¡¯s bookstores, a history of Nokia phones, and the annual Club 21 sale.
