內容簡介

This memoir of young American film-man Marvin Farkas's life in Hong Kong of the 1950s and 1960s looks set to be one of the biggest Asia books of 2011. Full of vivid stories and characters, the book is a classic tale of a young man's rite of passage, but also a first-hand account of some of the key events and personalities of a now lost era. Arriving in Hong Kong in 1954 on the cargo ship Eastern Saga, Marvin took up lodgings at the Foreign Correspondent's Club (FCC) as he started out building a career with only US$200 and the camera which he had taken from his father's new York studio. An Eastern Saga covers Marvin's experiences of events ranging from the expulsion of the Dutch from Indonesia, to Malaysian independence and the early years of the Vietnam war, and his meetings with key figures including Zhou Enlai, Sukarno, Ali Bhutto, and legendary director Satyajit Ray. Above all though, this is a charming account of a now lost era.
