For the Record and Other Poems of Hong Kong free pdf This collection of sixty poems was written during almost thirty years' residence in Hong Kong. Most are on explicitly Hong Kong topics, and reflect the writer's personal experience and knowledge of Hong Kong. Those who have emigrated or who have spent a period of time overseas will empathise with the expatriate experience described. Other poems narrate and reflect on personal events and concerns which will resonate with many. The translator is Dr Simon Chow, who, at the time of writing, was the writer's colleague at Hong Kong Baptist University. Her reading of all the poems in this collection has been professionally recorded for the two CDs packaged with the book. This, the first of her collections of poetry, was first published in 1997, the year that Hong Kong was returned to the Government of the People's Republic of China.
