"The book, written by former journalist Ivan Lim, not only celebrates his two decades as one of Singapore's most iconic performers but talks about his childhood, family and his rough start in the business. And, in it, Kumar confirms what is the worst kept secret in town... that he is gay." – AsiaOne
