A Life of Crime - StoryArts Festival Ipswich

A Life of Crime - StoryArts Festival Ipswich

There is a poster from the Singapore police department which states ‘Low Crime doesn’t mean no Crime!’ It adorns taxis on the island state and causes foreigners to stop and stare. This slogan might be one of the reasons that many people do not think ‘crime fiction’ when they think of the Asian novel.

Shamini Flint, ex-lawyer and writer, will explain why she believes that dipping our toes into the bloody bath of crime fiction writing is a great way to explore the tensions (as well as the curries and the beer!) within modern Asian society.

Join Shamini Flint and Inspector Singh (‘It’s impossible not to warm to the portly, sweating, dishevelled, wheezing Inspector Singh – the Guardian) as she takes us on a journey through the back streets of Asia.
