A multicultural hub bustling with possibility and promise, Hong Kong has become a centre for creativity and a source of inspiration. But it’s also a city facing daily contradictions: the riches of commerce amongst the shanty roof towns, the mango trees between industrial roundabouts and art facing commercial requirements. Through probing fiction and inquisitive non-fiction essays on politics, art, society, architecture and the economy, the Hong Kong Penguin Specials series explores this city’s deepest complexities.
