Tim I. Gurung

Author Tim I. Gurungabout this book: I came to Hong Kong in 1980 as a 17 years old Gurkha soldier, I am still here today after I voluntarily retired from the army in 1993, and for the last 35 years I have witnessed Hong Kong through my own eyes as my life also changed with time. Hong Kong is mostly known for money, shopping and high property; whatever books I have ever seen about Hong Kong based on all those things and nothing more; and there isn't even one famous writer in Hong Kong who writes in English. I have also read somewhere in the paper that people were lamenting about a lack of epic novel about Hong Kong, and I thought that why not I write one. After all, Hong Kong has been good to me and my family, I also owed a lot to it, and it would be a perfect gift for Hong Kong as my gratitude if nothing more. It is also the book that I had to work really hard to write, do a lot of researches and took me almost 3 years to complete.

It is an epic novel about Hong Kong, Chinese traditions and a tearjerker.
