Singapore Writers Festival 2009

List of books in the GoodReads system from authors invited to the Singapore Writers Festival 2009. GoodReads only allows 100 books on these lists, and it tends to be much stronger on English (and Indonesian) than other languages.

So, working within these limitations, I've limited each author to a maximum of two titles, and when I've had a choice I've gone for titles available in English. Apologies to invited writers Adeline Foo, Appala Narasiah, Chia Hwee Pheng, Danny Yeo, David Leo, Giddens, Hyoung-Su Park, Jayathi Sankar, Jean Tay, David Leo, Danny Yeo, Chua Lee Lay, Jiu Jian, Karvini Ramachandran, Kate McCaffrey, Katie Ham, Liu. Jun,, Latha, Fei Xin, Madeleine Lee, Maree Dawes, Marihumai Sivasubramanian, Mohd Latiff Bin Mohd, Noridah Binte Kamari, Norulashikin bte Jamain, Omar Musa, Rajat Das, Rama Kannabiran, Sharon Ismail, Shoes Lambada, Tan You Jin, Thangavel Palamalai, Thiru Kandiah, Wan Jumaiah Bte Mohd Jubri, and Wong Phui Nam among the invited writers whose works are not included in the GoodReads system.

Books were placed on this list in the alphabetical-by-first-name order used on the SWF website, but Troy Chin and Isa Kamari come first because I already had them among my GoodReads authors.
