More About This Title Diary Of A Former Covidiot


The Coronavirus or to use its hippier name, the Covid 19 pandemic has affected everyone across the globe, regardless of race, age, sex or religion.

With an astute sense of observation, Christina Thé has been inspired by how people behave in times such as this. “Locked-up” at home for 56 days, she has written these pieces to cheer up her friends and business associates; and to counter all the gloom and doom that is in the news. Though the incidents are all based on real incidents that have happened, the characters have been slightly exaggerated, as this is after all, a book of humour.

We can empathise and relate to her stories as it is how we all behave, or we know someone just like that, even if we refuse to publicly admit to such irrational actions.

It is an entertaining work written with wit and humour.

“This collection of vignettes about life under virtual lockdown (euphemistically called circuit breaker), is not only refreshing for its self-deprecating humour, but also a wry observation of human nature under duress (and without Durex, as Thé would quip). This is one book you want to keep by your side to survive the viral apocalypse. Panic-buy it now!”

— Felix Cheong, author and educator
