About the Book by Vaudine England Titled “Fortune’s Bazaar: The Making of Hong Kong”

From a Wall Street Journal bookshelf column by Melanie Kirkptrick headlined “A Cosmopolitan Success Story”:

Not long after I arrived in Hong Kong in 1980 to work for this newspaper, a colleague invited me to the China Fleet Club on the waterfront in the raunchy Wanchai district of the island. The evening was memorable—not only because it provided a glimpse into the world of Suzie Wong (memorably depicted in the 1960 movie) but also because it introduced me to an essential fact about Hong Kong: It’s not just a Chinese city.
