Inhaltsangabe: Singapore on the eve of the Japanese invasion. The Blackett family's prosperous world of tennis parties, cocktails and deferential servants seems unchanging. But it is poised on the edge of the abyss. J.G. Farrell is the author of "The Siege of Krishnapur".

Rezension: "No writer has swallowed all of Singapore, from its stately colonial bungalows to its once opium-infested slums, with the verve and wit of the late J.G. Farrell, whose 1978 saga "The Singapore Grip" remains the great Singapore novel...Farrell's pungent aroma still fleetingly hovers over today's city...With his gentle wit Farrell captures the soul of Singapore: a polyglot Asian port, still partly under the sleepy sway of its British colonial past, and still lurching toward an uncertain future with a furious, irresistible energy." --"Time Magazine"

"A brilliant, complex, richly absurd and melancholy monument to the follies and splendours of Empire."
Hilary Spurling
"[This] vivid, multi-dimensional portrait of Singapore is a superbly constructed book, enjoyable on many different levels."
"The Sunday Times"
"In Singapore Farrell makes a heroic and memorable attempt to portray and understand not only the Japanese, but also the lives of the millions of poor, oppressed, displaced and dying whose destruction came about through no fault of their own, who were swept helplessly away by the tides of commercial interest and war."
Margaret Drabble
"The author of the Booker Prize-winning "The Siege of Krishnapur "sets this brilliant work in Singapore in 1939, as an old English firm tries to cash in on the impending world war. A complex, often funny meditation on empire and other matters."
Martin Levin, "The Globe and Mail"
