Product Description

The 1997 Hong Kong handover was no laughing matter...or maybe it was!


Read the cartoons that chronicled the End of Empire, in this special 20th anniversary edition.

In March 1997 controversial, award-winning cartoonist Larry Feign was commissioned by a British newspaper to chronicle an unprecedented moment in history—The Reunification of China! The End of the British Empire!—and all the rumors, worst-case scenarios and unforgettable events:

  • Pre-handover supermarket specials
  • Last-minute pregnancies before the one-child policy kicked in
  • The greatest onslaught of tacky souvenirs in history
  • The invasion of the foreign journalists
  • Britain finally lifts a finger for Hong Kong

This book contains the entire series, plus cartoons from Time, Geo Magazine, and several previously unpublished cartoons, as well as A Politically Incorrect View of the Handover. You'll laugh almost as loud as Chinese leaders laugh at Hong Kong people's calls for democracy.

Click "Look Inside" to read the first chapter and cartoons!


"Feign has a piercing sense of irony and is laugh-out-loud funny."
Nury Vittachi, Far Eastern Economic Review

"Gratuitous cracks at po faced pontifications on the territory."
Geremie Barme, The Australian

"I was furious!"
Allen Lee, HK politician,
commenting on Feign's cartoons in The Last Governor by Jonathan Dimbleby

About the Author

Larry Feign is an award-winning writer and artist whose work has appeared in Time, The Economist, Fortune, the New York Times, and other publications. He has directed animated cartoons for Cartoon Network and Disney Television. His satirical books have been consistent bestsellers in his home base of Hong Kong, while his 'Lily Wong' comic strip was considered a bellwether of life and politics in the territory. His satirical commentary about the Hong Kong handover was Time Magazine's first-ever full-page cartoon essay. He earned his MFA in Writing from Pacific University, and received a MacDowell Fellowship from America's oldest artist colony. He is currently working on several books, including both humor and historical fiction. Larry has been married for over three decades to the clinical psychologist Dr. Cathy Tsang-Feign. In his spare time, Larry enjoys cycling and playing saxophone, though rarely at the same time. His mother still wishes he were a doctor. Check his website at www.larryfeign.com
