Charmaine Leung

Charmaine Leung is the author of 17A Keong Saik Road – a creative nonfiction book about her childhood in Keong Saik Road when it was a prominent red-light precinct in 1970s and 1980s. After a life overseas for almost 20 years, Charmaine returned to Singapore and discovered a vastly different Keong Saik Road. Her childhood and the changes she witnessed upon her return promoted her to pen a memoir of her growing up years. 17A Keong Saik Road was shortlisted for the Singapore Literature Prize 2018 and has been featured in various panels in Singapore Writers Festival and talks since its launch in May 2017.
