Hong Kong 20/20: Reflections on a Borrowed Place
The handover in 1997 saw Hong Kong?™s smooth transition from colonial to Communist rule under the auspices of the ?˜one country, two systems??framework. But twenty years on, the real impact of the sovereignty change is just starting to register: the city?™s near-total economic integration with the mainland, a massive influx of Chinese visitors, simmering cross-border tensions and a rapid erosion of freedoms. Believing that we are stronger and louder together, PEN Hong Kong invited some of Hong Kong?™s most prominent literary and creative minds to reflect on the city?™s post-colonial development, in a definitive compendium of essays, poems, fiction and artwork that marks this historical milestone.
