How We Disappeared (Novel, 2019)

I n f o r m a t i o n

»How We Disappeared: A Novel is a 2019 historical fiction novel by Singaporean author Jing-Jing Lee, written in English.
Lee developed the book from a short story she wrote, "Cardboard Lady," that appeared in her first collection, If I Could Tell You (2013). She named the main character Chiow Tee after her own mother; the name means "care for a brother" (zhàodì). She wanted to focus attention on the "comfort women" taken to work as slaves in Japanese military brothels, unlike other fiction about the occupation of Singapore which focused on resistance violence and male prisoners of war.« -- More information: Wikipedia
