Cemetery -- Miss You free pdf CEMETERY MISS YOU, in the form of transcripts from audio recordings (similar to Samuel Beckett's "Krapp's Last Tape") recounts the first year or so of a Pakistani illegal's experiences in Hong Kong. The work begins by detailing the boy-man's middle-class experiences in Pakistan, before he's all but forced to flee his home after shooting a man in the name of family honour. His life in Hong Kong begins as a life of poverty, living on the streets. Less than a year later he's buying rounds of drinks on The Peak, driving around in private cars, spending thousands of dollars on footwear, and making regular short trips to mainland China. --- The author writes: "Saa Ji--a name adopted by a host of Indian Subcontinent illegals and refugees in Hong Kong--tells not only his own story, but also the untold story of so many peripheral figures in Hong Kong, figures compelled into unimaginably intricate underworld networks--and not because of ethical unsoundness or suspectness. Instead, these perpetually marginalized and institutionally desperate figures have no other options. Saa Ji speaks of alterity in Hong Kong, of the otherness we all ignore."
