It took 3 attempts to read Hiroshima Joe My persistence paid off as once I got into the main character Joe Sandringham and the rich descriptions of Hong Kong in the 40s and 50s I was compelled to keep on readingI thoroughly enjoyed this book not only as a former resident of Colonial Hong Kong but also as a history enthusiast I attended the same high school as Martin Booth in the early 60s King George V school in Kowloon Hence the fine geographical details were particularly endearing to meI thought it was very clear of Martin to write himself into the plot as the young boy David Merriton early on in the novel If you ve read Gweilo Martin s autobiography and last book you ll see that he did in fact meet a down and out ex British soldier nicknamed Nagasaki Jim who was also staying at the Fourseas Hotel in Waterloo Road Kowloon in the early 50s when 7 year old Martin was living there with his parents Nagasaki Jim was taken as a PoW after the fall of Hong Kong on Christmas Day 1941 and was incarcerated at the Sham Shui Po prisoner camp before being trans shipped to Nagasaki on board the Lisbon Maru in October 1942 Obviously this is the basis of Hiroshima JoeAt times it was disturbing to read about the atrocities of war and the pitiful life of an opium addict however this was somewhat offset by reading about the strong bond of friendship between Joe and a benevolent Japanese civilian Mishima san No doubt I ll re read this book and once savour the fine details and engaging plotSadly Martin Booth passed away at the age of 59 in 2004 after an 18 month struggle with brain cancer His spirit lives on in such brilliant books as Hiroshima Joe Gweilo and many many others
