Heng Kim Song's New Book

My very good friend Heng Kim Song had an exhibition cum book launch recently. His book "Heng On The World Again" came 13 years after the first compilation of his riveting cartoon commentaries. Former Minister of Foreign Affairs George Yeo, in his Foreword to the book, mentioned Heng's "unusual ability to look deep into a situation, into its very essence, and to to see the humor and irony of it".

PM Lee also commented that "While foreign policy is a serious matter, serious points can often be made most effectively with a sense of humour. Your (Heng's) work demonstrates this."

If you value good art and incisive political commentary, this book deserves to be on your bookshelves.
