Summary

The ‘great' HongKong novel is probably still to be written. But for a definitiveaccount of what the people of the city live by and die for, look nofurther than David T. K. Wong.

At last a native son hascaptured brilliantly the essence of a unique society. A range ofcharacters, from barmen to laborers, from scholars to wealthybusinessman, infuse these memorable stories with the dreams andconcerns of those living in a British colony turned into a specialadministrative region of China.

These stories are carefullycrafted in the grand tradition of O. Henry, Maugham and Saki. Theycan be dipped into and savored over time or devoured in one sitting.But in whichever way they are read, they are filled with insightsinto the soul of one of the greatest cities in the world.
