Tinhead City, KL
Longlisted for the 2020 Epigram Books Fiction Prize
In this dystopian Kuala Lumpur, a faceless corporation manages the city and hope is as toxic as the air.
Abandoned by his father, 19-year-old Zachary Ti learns to fend for himself in the new, gritty world of KL, a district overrun by tinheads that are issuing capital punishment for the slightest of offences.
When he accidentally kills two of the cyborgs, Zach is forced to join an elite rebel faction whose methods are more than questionable. Soon he is sent back into the fray of KL—but this time he is a wanted man.
