The author undertakes the task of examining a large body of literature produced in Hong Kong to show it as an integral part of the universal human heritage. This thematic study of contemporary Hong Kong anglophone literature identifies a series of themes and motifs that can be drawn upon both as figures for an authentically «Hong Kong» criticism and as lenses through which to read, contextualize, and interpret the texts that constitute this canon of fiction, autobiography, drama, and poetry. Focusing on three central texts – Patrick Acheson’s intricately-wrought and provocative Flagrant Harbour, Lee Ding Fai’s rags-to-riches story Running Dog, and Timothy Mo’s The Monkey King – Hooper offers a theoretical structure for analyzing the postcolonial phenomena in the Hong Kong context. This book includes an exhaustive bibliography of Hong Kong literature.

A powerful critique providing both a dazzling synthesis of contemporary cultural theory as well as exemplary criticism. -- China Information

The single best introduction to Hong Kong writing, engaging directly issues of identity that Hong Kong culture faces post-1997. -- P.Y. Ho, The China Key
