description

cemetery miss you recounts the first year or so of a Pakistani illegal's experiences in Hong Kong. The work begins by detailing the boy-man's middle-class experiences in Pakistan, before he's all-but-forced to flee the place after shooting a man severally point-blank in the name of family honour. His life in Hong Kong begins as a life of poverty, living on the streets. Less than a year later he's buying rounds of drinks on The Peak, driving around in private cars, spending thousands of dollars on footwear, and making regular short trips to mainland China. Saa Ji, a name adopted by a host of Indian Subcontinent illegals and refugees in Hong Kong, tells not only his own story, but also the untold story of so many peripheral figures in Hong Kong, figures compelled into unimaginably intricate underworld networks and not because of ethical unsoundness or suspectness. Instead, these perpetually marginalized and institutionally desperate figures have no other options. Saa Ji speaks of alterity in Hong Kong, of the otherness we all criminally ignore.
