ABOUT THE BOOK
Meet the four misfits living in one HDB flat.
One is a Malay–Jew who is trying to get his father to come back as a ghost. Cantona is a promising Bangladeshi artist on the run from a construction company. Tights is a Chinese illegal immigrant with a Forrest Gump obsession. And Shanti is a gifted Indian lab technician hiding from her abusive husband.
When a forlorn pontianak begins haunting them, the four friends find themselves embroiled in a surreal showdown that may just upend the world, or at least Singapore.
Written in Suffian Hakim’s trademark humour, The Minorities is a novel about those living on the edges of society and their soulful bond.
