By Tong, Richard
In 1991, Richard Tong came home to a place he'd never been before. Hong Kong. With no money, no experience and absolutely no idea of what awaited, he embarked on a 10-year journey, exploring the alien corners of Asia and discovering the darkest regions of his soul.

It takes you swiftly to the edge of the great cultural divide... and throws you into the abyss.Read more

Born in Australia, raised and reborn in China, Richard Tong is an award-winning, 25-year veteran of Asian advertising. His first novel, The Durian Effect, is a fictional memoir, loosely based on his virgin encounters with the Eastl. It quickly made its way into the pantheon of contemporary Asian literature. The sequel, Me & My Potato, took an equally candid look at the breeding and birthing of bi-cultural babies. In 2014, Tong launched a series of neo-noir thrillers. Bitch On Heat, is the first and has been critically acclaimed. Hailed alongside Clavell, le Carre, Ludlum and Mason as one of the all-time 10 best books set in Hong Kong. The sequel, Sayonara Bitch, was released in December 2015.
