In Memoriam:
英培安 (Yeng Pway Ngon)
1947 - 2021


英培安先生生前写了许多著作,不仅获奖无数,也非常深受读者们和爱书人的肯定与好评。他兼擅多种文类,其中包括了戏剧,小说,诗集,散文及评论集。英先生一生奉献文学,除了写作,也热衷于经营书店。他在桥北中心创办的草根书室因为他那一份执着,顽固地专营文史哲书籍(所谓的 “冷门书”)而曾是新加坡一道特殊的文化风景。



The Singapore Book Council and literary arts community is saddened to learn of the passing of one of our beloved writers and former Singapore Literature Prize winner 英培安 (Yeng Pway Ngon).

Mr Yeng’s examination of the human condition in his writing is timeless and universal, winning him awards and acclaim from readers of different languages. He wrote fiction, poetry, essays and plays and founded Grassroots Book Room, taking his passion for writing and literature to his final moments.

Rest in peace Mr Yeng, and thank you for reminding us of the importance of self-reflection and self-examination in your works. Our thoughts and condolences are with Mr Yeng’s family during this difficult time.
