About

NPG 1630; Gertrude Elizabeth (nÈe Blood), Lady Colin Campbell by Giovanni Boldini
by Giovanni Boldini, oil on canvas, circa 1897

Name: Sarah Wong

City: Hong Kong

Fields of Interests:

1) Amish (one of my favourite topics and interests in reading and in life! I love their culture and their values. slow and fast in Rumspringa; old and new in the affiliations; high and low in the language (Pennsylvania Dutch/German) they use in daily life and the traditional/progressive groups they come from; plain and fancy from the outsiders’ perspectives, very interesting religious case)

I also am interested in books on Mennonites especially I had read Women Talking by Miriam Toews.

2) Victorians (literature, lifestyle and societal circles, history, and Pre-Raphaelite Art…) Without dispute, Wilkie Collins is my favourite writer of that era.

3) Humors (P. G. Wodehouse is my favourite writer in comical novels, so is Roald Dahl. Again, it is an infinitive area to study and to read)

That said , I am always open-minded to all recommendations on reading.
