Masquerading as the biography of a fictional comic book artist, “The Art of Charlie Chan Hock Chye” is, in fact, an incredibly meta meditation on the meaning of history, the role of biography, and the way our stories - our own personal narratives - shape the world around us. This week, on Invisible Cities, Uma speaks to author and artist Sonny Liew about Charlie Chan's subjunctive Singapore.


Show Notes:


i. You can find yourself a copy of "The Art of Charlie Chan Hock Chye" here.


ii. For more of Sonny's work, check out the Secreter Robot Spy Factory


iii. "The Art of Charlie Chan Hock Chye" launched in 2015 to some controversy resulting in Singapore's National Arts Council taking back the grant they had awarded towards the publishing of the book. You can read more about why here.
