Maya, Gerald, Rammy and Anais are back and in full swing scratching their heads over experimental fiction! Ingenue by Deborah Wong is a highly poetic story baffled our hosts, who try to temper their confusion with respect for the author’s craft. Maya valiantly defends poetics, while Anais tries her hardest to thread together the bits of the plot. Gerald reflects on the best sentences that moved him, as Rammy ponders the appropriateness of breaking grammar rules that throw the reader off track.
