Night Butterfly

Front Cover

Night Butterfly, a love story of undergraduates embroiled in the anti-colonial struggle of Singapore's early days.

The filial Lim Poh Seng is torn between his responsibilities to his family and his love for the vivacious and enigmatic Wong Su Chin. They lead us through the murky underworld of secret societies, sleazy cabarets and strip-joints and into the death houses of Sago Lane.

This psychological thriller contrasts the grievances and frustration of the down-trodden masses, with the privileged world of the English-educated elite.
