Pulp II: A Visual Bibliography of the Banished Book
Winner Singapore Literature Prize (creative nonfiction) 2020
“Probing, exhaustive in its global scope, intellectually ambitious and deeply felt, the second volume in artist-writer Shubigi Rao’s decade-long documentary project on reading, libraries and censorship gets to the heart of what ‘creative non-fiction’ can be.
As a book on the value of books, rendered through incisive prose and visual imagery,
it provokes the whole question of what a book is, in terms of form.
In terms of content, it is replete with insight and wisdom, constantly shifting our expectations of the subject matter
and in the process, able to stand with the best in world literature."
