If you're looking for a coherent narrative, you won't find it here. But if you're looking for the heart of (Chinese) Hong Kong, this is the book.

西西(1938年10月7日-),原名張彥,又名張愛倫,香港作家、編輯,生於上海,祖籍廣東省中山縣,小學畢業於上海,1950年定居香港,就讀於協恩中學,初中時在中文部,中四後轉入英文部。同時並開始投稿香港的報刊、雜誌,曾作短篇小說《瑪利亞》,獲《中國學生周報》徵文比賽小說組第一名。[1]其後畢業於葛量洪教育學院,曾任教師工作,任教於官立小學。對於詩、小說、散文、童話均有涉獵。她勇於嘗試新寫作風格,寫作手法涉獵之廣,敘述手法之細膩,是當前華文作家中的佼佼者。

西西的筆名,據她本人所述,乃象形文字,「西」是一個穿著裙子的女孩子兩隻腳站在地上的一個四方格子裡,「西西」就是跳飛機的意思,這是她小時候喜歡玩的一種遊戲。
