Description

What does it mean to be a 'Hong Kong person'? Hong Kong has never been an independent state, nor has it completely reverted to mainland Chinese control. Once a British colony, now a semi- autonomous Special Administrative Region of China, Hong Kong is something of a mystery even to itself. Although it has long had a majority Cantonese Chinese population, the presence of significant expatriate communities - Western, Indian, Filipino, and others - creates a unique cultural diversity. This is evident in Hong Kong's literary output as well: although Cantonese is by far the majority language, English writing occupies a small but enduring niche. In this collection of short stories, eight writers explore the questions of what it means to be in, from, and of the Hong Kong of the past, the present, and the future.
