Stories from the City of Hong Kong
by Xu Xi
This new edition includes a reading guide for literature & creative writing teachers and students by Prof. Mike Ingham of Lingnan University.
From the turbulent sixties through the nineties, here is a “history” of Hong Kong, told through fiction by one of Hong Kong'’s top writers. Written over the past thirty years, these stories represent the evolution and shaping of a voice, as she strives to create art out of her birthplace, “the city that remains her perpetual concern.” Here are portraits of Hong Kong, painted with compassion and love against the backdrop of historical events.
