Welcome to the anglophone Hong Kong literature website. This website
introduces you to the rich corpus of English-language writing about
Hong Kong. Here, you will find short summaries and critical comments
on more than 100 books. Most of these books are fictional, and they
show how writers from many places and different times have imagined
Hong Kong and its people.
summary will introduce the content, or story, to give an idea of
what the book is about. Critical comments are meant to open up ways
of reading and discussion. They are offered to readers new to Hong
Kong and Hong Kong literature, scholars, teachers, and
students searching for materials, book club members, and members of
the public, both local and international, who enjoy reading for
100+ entries are grouped under six categories: "Adventure"
"Historical", "Romance", "Children in Literature and Children's
Literature", "Gothic", "1997 Narratives". This will enable readers
to identify their special interests quickly. These categories also
help delineate a book's main characteristics but they are not meant
to be rigid and absolute. Many of the books can belong to more than
one category. More titles will be added from time to time.
