Lost at 15, Found at 50 // Always a Foreigner
SINGAPORE LITERATURE PRIZE 2020 JUDGE'S COMMENTS
"The gripping narrative, particularly the first two-thirds, captures the numerous cultural shocks of author Ashwini Devare's itinerant life as a diplomat's daughter-turned-broadcast journalist. and the rich specificities of family life and other relationships. Through Devare's pacey and evocative
storytelling, her family's journey to some of the unlikeliest corners of the world becomes our own. At the same time, she folds in enough detail of geopolitics and the social fabric of various countries to also give an effective journalistic snapshot of the times."
