Item description for Singapore Girl: A Memoir by James Eckardt...

This is the true story of a long-vanished Singapore and the dangerous carnival known as Bugis Street. James Eckardt arrived in 1970s Singapore only to fall in love with a Singaporean nymph named Milly. Thirty years later an email arrived that would lead Eckardt to discover what had happened to the Singapore girl, who, at the time he had loved her, had not technically been female.

Reviews - What do customers think about Singapore Girl: A Memoir?

Odd but interesting...  Oct 10, 2007
While visiting a Singapore store a sales lady recommended this book to me so I could "get to know Singapore." After having read it I am pretty surprised it was recommended in such a conservative culture. The author candidly recounts his time in 1970s Singapore during which he falls in love with a male prostitute that dresses/acts like a female. The book is pretty graphic in some sections so be prepared if you're uncomfortable about that sort of thing. The book has a few typos which I was surprised about but was a very intersting read. I finished it in two days. While the author doesn't delve into the philosophical questions raised by his relationship with "Milly," the book does cause one to wonder what it means to be a girl. Is being a woman a performance? Is it biological? Genetic? And what does it take to suspend one's notion of gender and sex? The author refers to Milly as "she" despite her physical sex so as the reader I generally thought of her as a woman too, until her penis is mentioned... Anways, an interesting and quick read.
