'Do you know what it was like here? You wouldn't believe the glamour. But the Hollywood of the Orient will soon be gone altogether'

1987, Hong Kong. Trying to outrun his demons, a young man called Buddha returns to the bustling place of his birth and moves into a small Buddhist nunnery in the crumbling neighbourhood of Diamond Hill. Even as he begins to care for the fiery Iron Nun who guards the place she loves and a faded film actress who calls herself Audrey Hepburn, this pocket of the old city is vanishing in front of his eyes.

But no one arrives in Diamond Hill by accident, and Buddha's ties to this place run deeper than he is willing to admit. Can he make peace with his past and survive in this disappearing city?

'Gripping and highly accomplished... A thoroughly enjoyable and profound exploration of powerlessness, identity and the evolution of a city' Guardian

'Fan is an exuberant chronicler of a lost time and place... It's a timely consideration of Hong Kong's recent past' The Times

'A textured, unsettled portrait of a territory facing a decisive ending... An elegy to that vanished vanishing world' The Wall Street Journal
