About the Book

Truth is a space that is contested. In relating stories, the truth is also being communicated – at least the version that the storyteller wants to be heard. Chasing Cinderella explores the contest of truths by using the plot of dead storytellers competing against each other in hell for the grand prize of rebirth. Through their retelling of folktales, the fight between them mirrors the battle of truths. As they strive to assert their narratives so that it becomes the dominant one, the dead bards are answering the question: “What is the nature of man?’ Whose truth will prevail?

About the Author
A.C.K. Min

My love for the written word took off when I started my first job as a journalist for a community newspaper. In my observation and interaction with people from different walks of life - families of murder victims, victims of scams, perpetrators of crime, retrenched workers, among many others, fact and fiction sometimes become blurred as interested parties try to gain the upper hand. This led me to wonder who is the good person and who is the bad one in every story I pursued. Looking at the bigger picture, I became more interested in the question of man's motivation and nature. Can bad people do good things? Can good people do bad things? Why?
