This is his memoir of that youth, a time when he had access to corners of the colony normally closed to a gweilo, a pale fellow like him.

From the plink plonk man with his dancing monkey to Nagasaki Jim, and from a drunken child molester to the Queen of Kowloon (the crazed tramp who may have been a Romanov), Martin saw it all--but his memoir illustrates a deeper challenge in his warring parents.

This is an intimate and powerful memory of a place and time now past.
