The city is a place laced with the material and the immaterial, the visible and invisible. There are the migratory lines trod by our ancestors, the scent of our foodways, the flight of birds, the sigh of an old school, a demolished rooftop, an unassuming lamppost, fading tongues, empty chairs, extroverted harbours. These are the indelible marks that layer our city, that make up where we are, and who we are.

Drawing together her memories growing up in Singapore and lyrical observations of the nation's ever-changing landscape, Yi Wei creates an evocative portrait of the city and what it means to her. Beautifully rendered and delicately written, Indelible City brings you on an intimate sojourn with Yi Wei as she explores issues of home, identity and place.

“The city, under the magic of Yi Wei's creative non-fiction, is a living thing tinged with loss, nostalgia and wonder.” - Yong Shu Hoong, poet and editor of essays, Quarterly Literary Review Singapore
“Yi Wei's debut guides with a gentle hand through a mnemonic city, her mnemonic city, signposted by fiction, fact and fancy.” - Loh Guan Liang, author of Bitter Punch and Transparent Strangers
