THREE WISHES IN BARDO draws an intimate picture of twentieth century Hong Kong while telling the story of a typical Hong Kong bright boy and his devoted mother. It is also a story of scientific labour and discovery, where single-mindedness, integrity, talent and skill rise from the mire of academic sharp-practice and envy. Different strands of the plot weave together to form a climactic ending where all characters’ lives resolve into fulfilment with a touch of humour and true catharsis created from genuine surprise. ~~~~~~~ “This exploration of a Eurasian boy’s early life in Hong Kong, and his later troubled career as a neuroscientist in America, contains elements of realism and detective mystery along with Buddhist fable and modern fairy tale—an unconventional mixture that makes for a diverting read. And, in spite of moments of sadness and darkness, it is a story ultimately suffused with good karma.” —David Diskin, Proverse Prize winner 2011, author of The Village in the Mountains. “Expect the unexpected. Expect...Karmic Fiction! ... expect details, grand narrative sweeps, and a menagerie of varied characters!” —Lawrence Gray, Proverse Prize winner 2015, author of Adam’s Franchise, Cop Show Heaven, and Odds and Sods. “An emotional, entertaining and educational tale very well written. Strongly recommended.” —Dr Paul Murray “Three Wishes in Bardo is a simple, clever story that will appeal particularly to those who remember post-war English Hong Kong.” —Bill Purves
