The book Siblings tells the story about the struggle of a Chinese family during the pre- and postwar years in Hong Kong. Based on recollections of the author and his two older brothers, the author wrote about how his eldest brother had started from nothing to become a successful entrepreneur and how he took care of his sister and younger brothers in a subtle way by helping them in their lives, their families, and their careers. The book covers more than a half century of events about the family in the tiny city of Hong Kong.
