Hi David,

Many thanks for the suggestion.

The biography of Jacks, along with the story of why I was interested in him, can be viewed here:

For Hong Kongers, our venerable old China Hands in Oz and the eternally curious: please come to the Southern Cross Uni book launch in Lismore, NSW on 10 November


Wine, readings and tapas. All free! The HK love will be zinging around...

Best, Rohan
