Amidst the reshaping of Hong Kong's social, cultural, political and ideological landscape, how do we reenvisage a city that exists in our memories? For those who have left their hometown--or the place they once called home--the question, "What does it mean to be a Hongkonger?" marks a constant shift between conflicting realities, identities and perceptions. Beyond the act of remembering, how do we reimagine our relationship with Hong Kong in the present and the future? In this collection of prose, poetry and photography by eighteen writers and artists, we see a gathering of reflections on the profound changes and subtle transitions that have transpired in Hong Kong, both in recent times and over the past decades.
