Sophia "The Piano Teacher" by Janice Y.K. Lee is a recent novel that is also set in Hong Kong. It really reminds me of home :)

Add it to the list, Sophie, we use these lists as aide memoirs as to what to read next and having just checked out the blurb on The Piano Teacher, that might just be the one I go for next.

Bettie I must say that the film of Tai Pan is so dreadful that you should never feel inclined to watch it. If you thimk, regardless of advice, that you will suffer it all the same, then let me be the one who sends you the DVD.

:O))

Mike I'm not sure if Don't Joke on the Stairs belongs here. There is almost nothing about Hong Kong. It's more about traveling in mainland China.
