In the Wake of Terror – Rosaly Puthucheary

In the Wake of Terror is a thought-provoking narrative of a 25-year-old immigrant, Li Mei, a medical doctor and writer, in search of a new identity in a politically awakened Singapore in the fifties.

The novel dramatises the crucial years before the People’s Action Party comes into power, and examines how a doctor, wife of a police officer, is forced to become aware of the unnamed feelings in the substratum of her being in the city. The story is woven into the fabric of a society suffering from the aftermath of terror.
