33 bilingual poems of Hong Kong. Intersections of pop culture, high art, politics, relationships, and literary and feminist theory. Originally written in Chinese by poet and cultural critic Lok Fung (Natalia Chan); translated into English by Eleanor Goodman.

This book, together with Xi Xi’s Not Written Words and Liu Wai Tong’s Wandering Hong Kong with Spirits, are the first publications in the Hong Kong Atlas series. Hong Kong Atlas is an important first step in expanding the English-language canon with a range of Hong Kong voices. By drawing on literature, translation and creative culture as a way of remapping a global city, the Atlas project offers alternative histories to Hong Kong through its own literature.
