Description
This sizzling new collection of short fiction from the Hong Kong Writers' Circle, edited by Tammy Ho Lai-ming and Jeff Zroback, provides an Asian spin on the timeless theme of love and lust. The stories are set across the Asian region, from China to India, from Bali to South Korea and even as far south as Tasmania, reflecting the contributors' wide range of nationalities.

The stories revolve around the many facets of the most beguiling of emotions. From the tale of lovers torn apart by the cold war to the fall-out from a hilariously mistaken identity to the antics of a mischievous matchmaker, in our anthology love is won, lost, requited, abandoned, won all over again or even surrendered to some good old-fashioned bawdiness.

The authors include some of Hong Kong's finest writers such as Mike Ashton, John Biggs, Mike Bishop, Betty Bownath, Grace Chan, Winnie Chau, Muhammed Cohen, Michael Gibb, Lawrence Gray, Ian Greenfield, Peter Gregoire, Tammy Ho, Noble Hughes, Cara Leek, Reid Mitchell, Mohyna Srinivasan, Jane Wallace and BB Wei.

"The book's appeal lies in the hybrid mixture of its contributors; their cultural perspectives resulting in wildly differeing (and often hilarious) take on the theme."
--HK Magazine, FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 29, 2008, p. 36.
