As a child, "It's Raining Mens" author Bebang Siy flipped through prayer books she couldn't understand, devoured her elder cousin's tabloids (particularly the sex advice column!), and went through her dad's stash of thriller paperbacks. Join her, and hosts Gege Sugue and Shani Tan, as she talks about the books that made her the reader and writer she is today.
