Introduction The cover of this book shows a man climbing up and falling down from the Jardine House, a commercial building in Hong Kong Central previously named as Connaught Centre. It was a landmark of the colonial city in the 1970s, the highest building before the advent of Hopewell Centre. Apart from its dramatic height, the round-shaped windows have definitely inspired writers’ urban imagination.
