Lee Kuan Yew is known by many names: Singapore's first Prime Minister. Co-founder of the People's Action Party. The founding father of modern Singapore. Harry. LKY. For the first time, get to know the man behind the myth through the humorous and incisive cartoons of Morgan Chua. His acclaimed archival political cartoons tell the dramatic and all-too-human story of a precocious boy with a dream who grew up to fight for what he believed in-in love and life.

The urban legend goes that Morgan Chua’s first political cartoon of Lee Kuan Yew in the Singapore Herald led to the newspaper’s closure in 1971. Undeterred by this, Lee’s near mythic status became fodder for Morgan’s creative imagination and incisive pen as he continued his satirical sketches of the prime minister in the Far Eastern Economic Review. For the first time, over 100 of Morgan’s LKY cartoons—along with new ones—have been collected, covering Lee’s pioneering years up to the present day. In LKY: Political Cartoons, the fearless Morgan meets the fearsome Harry.

Editorial Reviews

“I really like the bulge Morgan gives [LKY] around his eyebrows, beneath which his eyes are sometimes two slits, sometimes small buttons and rarely open. I’ve never read a biography of someone in the form of political cartoons, but this one works pretty well...There is a delightful section where [LKY] meets foreign leaders.”
V Sudarshan,The New Indian Express

“If you have always wondered what the epic, unexpurgated life of Singapore's founding prime minister would look like as comic strips, this book by [Morgan] Chua is for you.”
Corrie Tan and Nabilah Said, The Sunday Times 

“A very interesting collection.”
TJS George, author of Lee Kuan Yew's Singapore
