A hardboiled detective near the burnt-end of days. His knuckleheaded partner, a scholar destined for bigger things. And a young mother working illegally as a bar girl. In the sprawl of a city oblivious to their dreams, their lives intersect in the most unlikely of places – a murder scene.
Sprawl is gritty and laced with dark humour, its characters paradoxically cynical and romantic. Innovative and surprising, Sprawl will open your eyes to how poetry and artwork can work seamlessly together. And how a city as hard-edged in chrome and steel as Singapore has the softness of an underbelly.
