Get blown away by HIS DREAM OF THE SKYLAND in August!

May 10, 2018

Emmy Award winner Anne Opotowsky teams up with visionary artist Aya Morton for a stunning exploration of youth, ambition, loyalty, and the walls we build both inside and out, animating historical Hong Kong with powerful modern resonance.

“A stunning piece of work… it has depth, lots of drama, bucket-loads of charm, and comedy and tragedy in equal measure. His Dream of the Skyland is a beautiful book that looks set to become a classic.” — Grovel

“It opens with a scene of furtive, hurried sex… but this astounding tale, by veteran screenwriter and journalist Opotowsky, belies its prosaic beginning. With well-drawn characters, naturalistic storytelling and cultural explorations, it's a stunner.” — Miami Herald

“The full-color art creates a rich and mysterious world populated by sinister gangsters, generous prostitutes, tragic acrobats, and the curious inhabitants of the Walled City -- people who don't exist because they have no papers. This intriguing combination of historical fiction and modern folktale explores the magic and corruption of colonial Hong Kong.” — Library Journal
