A rich, gutsy collection of 8 short stories that continue where Lees first two books ended, immersing the reader into the vivid, multi-hued world of the Peranakans. Mixing memory and desire, the tales feature the exploits of fiery females who seek release from the grip of tradition, trying to locate an individual identity compatible with a sense of belonging to the community, within a unique cultural heritage facing the challenges of modern times. Like a delicate pair of beaded nyonya slippers, each story glimmers like a tiny ball of coloured glass, beautifully wrought and fashioned by a master. The stories are accented with photographs peppered throughout C of gorgeous vintage sarongs, bejewelled adornments, gilded artefacts from private collections and of course, twinkling, sparkling manek-encrusted accessories.
