Item description for Tales from No. 9 Ice House Street by Patrick Yu Shuksiu...
In Patrick Yus much-admired first book, A Seventh Child and the Law, he told of his early life and formidable educational achievements. In Tales from No. 9 Ice House Street, he takes up the story as he returned to Hong Kong to become the first Chinese Crown Counsel and later a successful advocate in private practice. He recounts in his lively and intriguing way a series of the court cases in which he was involved. There are unusual topics such as the "Case of the Young Man Who Impersonated a Police Officer" or the "Case of the Solicitor Convicted of an Offence Not Known to the Law." These read like classic detective stories, while also shedding light on life and the law in Hong Kong.
Whether telling of his own life, recalling people with whom he came into contact, or telling legal stories, Patrick Yu shows himself to be an able raconteur and one whose life has provided him with many fascinating stories to tell.
