In this kaleidoscope of stories, translated from the Chinese, P.K.
Leung, one of Hong Kong's most celebrated literary figures,
presents his personal vision of the city, evoking in his inimitable
voice the local and international dimensions of this extraordinary
place, capturing its poignant ambivalence as a postcolonial
territory on the fringe of China. Writing in his uniquely
unpretentious and honest style, he brings to life for the reader an
unforgettable gallery of characters, with their shared memories and
ties with Hong Kong. He portrays ordinary lives against the
background of local history, mingling subtle pathos with realism
and humour. This is a collection for all general readers of
fiction, for all those interested in Hong Kong literature, and for
the many who already know and admire P.K. Leung and his work.
