Product description

Review

"A classic memoir... the voice of the youthful narrator carries the reader on in a wonderfully honest tone... Booth has delivered a pre-coming-of-age book that ranks with the best of the breed. The writing is superb... it is a more than worth legacy to his prolific literary life, but also stands as one of the most original and engaging memoirs of recent years, all the more telling because it is so personal, witty and true" (The Times)

"Admirably evocative... one longs to learn what happened next; but, alas, we never will" (The Sunday Times)

"It has such pace and power... his memoir is, above all, a celebration... the portrait of his parents... is particularly fine" (Sunday Telegraph)

"Highly evocative... as a sharp-eyed, sensitive child of a vanished Hong Kong, Booth earns his nostalgia... his family are not the only ones who will enjoy the book" (Daily Telegraph)

"His finest work. Full of local colour and packed with incident" (Evening Standard ‘Pick of the Year’)

Book Description

Evocative, funny and full of life - a beautifully written and observed childhood memoir of growing up in colonial Hong Kong shortly after World War 2.
