Cantonese Love Stories as Time Capsules

Dung Kai-Cheung's Cantonese Love Stories: Twenty-five Vignettes of a City, which is one of seven slim books in Penguin's Hong Kong Series published in 2017, contains 25 short pieces - the 'vignettes' of the subtitle - translated from the Chinese into English by Bonnie S. McDougall and Anders Hansson. These pieces are selected from Dung's earlier collection, The Catalogue <<夢華錄>>, which includes 99 sketches. First written in 1998 and 1999, shortly after Hong Kong's handover from Britain to China, the pieces comment on Hong Kong society at that momentous time.

Success!
