witness history of Hong Kong
from the eye of a writer's childhood
watching the life of ordinary chinese, his british father who worked for
the hong kong governmemt,
his mother who befriended
a variety of people.

I particularly
enjoyed the personal witness account of one of Hong Kong's historical fires that destoryed the houses of refugee settlements

the author 's experience about
a rare hong kong earth quake

and the life and death of a monkey , when it escaped from
its master , a street performer
using the monkey as part of his work

this book is a must read for all
students in Hong kong
this book is from one special student of hongkong to all students of hongkong
for people who want to understand Hongkong

the author said this book is for his children to let them understand his life

it is a good book for all who want to understand hong kong

I regard it as one of the top memoirs about Hongkong

Booth's "gwai lo" observations of HK life in the 50s and Chinese customs are pretty spot on!

Very enjoyable. Made me wish to be a boy again - living in Hong Kong of course. A very easy read.
