Kirby Wrightabout this book: HONG KONG MAN was inspired by my journey to Hong Kong, where I represented the Pacific Rim region of Hawaii as a Fellow in Writing. I lectured to Journalism and English Department students at Hong Kong Baptist University and read original poetry at the Fringe Club in downtown Hong Kong. I was also the opening act at the InternationaI Writers Conference downtown, where I recited the poem "Black Point, Oahu" to piano accompaniment.
I was also sent to China, where I lectured at United International College in Zhuhai.
The book's cover represents a night of fear. I was strolling by the People's Liberation Army barracks in Kowloon Tong and took the photo you see on the cover. The flash alerted the night sentry, who left his post and pursued me through the streets of Kowloon Tong until I escaped through a narrow corridor outside the Riverside Restaurant just off-campus. A harrowing experience but I hope you enjoy the photo as well as the dangerous effort capturing it!
