NTU Creative Writing PhD student Ng Yi-Sheng has won this year's prize for Best Literary Work at the Singapore Book Awards for his short story collection Lion City.

"I'm truly grateful to NTU for giving me the space and community that helped me finish writing this book. I hope the university continues to support many other projects in spirit of creativity, experimentation and intellectual freedom." - Ng Yi-Sheng

"This collection takes apart the tropes trumpeted ad infinitum about Singapore - the Lion City, gone from fishing village to having great food and a world-class airport - and reveals the magic of myth that underpins them all." Straits Times
