We are pleased to have collaborated with the Confucius Institute at University of Glasgow to bring over one of Hong Kong’s most celebrated crime writers for this special event. In his novel, Second Sister, a librarian, lives a quiet life with her sister. After a difficult, impoverished upbringing and the deaths of their parents, they are finally finding a bit of stability until one day, she comes home to find her teenage sister has jumped to her death. Part detective novel, part revenge thriller, the novel explores themes of sexual harassment, internet bullying and teenage suicide – and vividly captures the zeitgeist of Hong Kong today.
