My City: A Hongkong Story-Renditions Paperbacks
Chinese University Press
180 pag. paperback 14 x 21 cm
Hong Kong in the 1970s- a time of rapid economic growth, and more significantly, of growth in self-confidence and the forging of a national identity. In a disarming style uniquely her own, Xi Xi weaves a deceptively child-like narrative against a background of the political and social problems of this complex society. Seldom has a writer captured the spirit of a generation with such apparent simplicity and ease.
