Jason Y. Ng, born in Hong Kong, is a globetrotter who spent his adult life in Italy, the United States, and Canada before settling in his birthplace to rediscover his roots. He is the author of the recently published Umbrellas in Bloom, the first English-language book to chronicle the pro-democracy political movement that took Hong Kong by storm in the fall of 2014. Ng is also the bestselling author of HONG KONG State of Mind and No City for Slow Men, and his short stories have appeared in various anthologies. His social commentary blog As I See It and leisure review site The Real Deal have attracted a cult following.
