Fiction - Published: 30/May/2016 - ISBN: 9780702254048

A young girl sees ghosts from her third eye, located where her belly button should be. A one-dimensional yellow man steps out of a cinema screen, hoping to lead a three-dimensional life. A journalist goes on assignment to report the latest food trend, which turns ice-cream eating into an extreme sport. In Portable Curiosities, Julie Koh re-imagines our world with a dark, satirical twist. These twelve stories combine absurd humour with critiques on contemporary society – the rampant consumerism, the casual misogyny, the insidious fear of those who are different.
