When I was a Kid is a collection of shorter than short stories about growing up in Singapore and Malaysia through the eyes of an unlikely hero, Boey. Son of a bird farmer, D grade student, pre-internet survivor.

In what is considered to be his best work to date, When I was a Kid 5: “I was Born in a Time of War” tells the stories of Boey’s parents. The book comes with dual covers, can be read from either end, and tells of stories that are both playful and heart-breaking. The format of the book has also been meticulously laid out to lend to the story-telling. In short, there is nothing quite like it.
