Gweilo memoir of Hong Kong childhood

€ 14,95

In Gweilo - memoirs of a Hong Kong childhood in a far-flung outpost of the British Empire, Booth vividly recalls his adventures in the city over the course of three years in the 1950s, from when he was seven until he was 10. His Hong Kong was one of rickshaws and country clubs, the days when the Kowloon Walled City still stood and held considerable allure for a British boy. The city was still a place where even a civil servant of relatively low standing could afford to give his family a life of considerable luxury, starting with a grand residence on The Peak.
As well as running with rickshaw drivers and monks, fortune tellers and triads, young Booth also took high tea at The Peninsula and supped on treats from a Russian bakery. Squatters lived side by side with the rich, and the boy moved freely between both worlds. Gweilo, Martin Booth, Engelstalig, (2004)
