Nury Vittachi



Born: 1958 in Ceylon
First Book: Reliable Sauce: The Secret Diaries of Lai See (Pacific Century Books, 1991)

Nury Vittachi is Hong Kong’s most popular contemporary writer in English and has been hailed by CNN as 'the beat reporter of the offbeat’. Vittachi and his parents fled the war in Sri Lanka and emigrated to Britain. He began his career with the South China Morning Post in the late 1980s. He is well known for not pulling his punches in his journalistic writing – his gossip column was deemed too dangerous to publish in the 1990s after Hong Kong was handed over to China.

He now lives with his English wife and three adopted Chinese children in Hong Kong. His whole life has been dedicated to breaking down cultural barriers and promoting freedom of expression and he has written many fiction and non-fiction books for adults and children.
