How is your book club going?
I can't say I'm honestly that bookish. I read French as my preferred literature with English way below second.
Of all the times I've come to Hong Kong, I bring my own literature. I've not found much in the way of local interest or chinese novels particularly illuminating. The last book I'd picked up - 'Snowflower and the the hidden fan' or something by Lisa See, really tested my patience.
If you can recommend any native chinese authors writing in English, I'd love to hear.
