On a new episode of the That's Life podcast, Lydia Vasko speaks with Singapore authors Krishna Udayasankar, Sebastian Sim and Sonny Liew, a trio of new and established writers whose latest books are in stores.

Udayasankar speaks about how much an author's work is worth in Singapore, and how she balances life as an author and a full-time lecturer at Nanyang Business School.

Sim says he is happy he did not follow the path of his protagonist in Let's Give It Up For Gimme Lao!, a book about a Singaporean son's life in the rat race.

Liew, this year's best-selling and most controversial author, talks about why he was a little worried about publishing The Art Of Charlie Chan Hock Chye, and shares his plans for his next graphic novel. Hint: It is political.
