The Singapore Grip by J. G. Farrell

The Singapore Grip is a novel by J. G. Farrell. It was published in 1978, a year before his death. In 2015, The Straits Times' Akshita Nanda selected The Singapore Grip as one of 10 classic Singapore novels. She wrote, "Neatly weaving in snappy, comic summaries of Singapore history as well as the commercial and cultural forces that shaped the trajectory of World War II in South-east Asia and China, The Singapore Grip is also a powerful cure for post-colonial malaise with its details of the British elite's snobbery towards people of Chinese, Indian, Malay, Eurasian and American descent."

The 1329th greatest fiction book of all time
