Yi Shu [real name Isabel Nee ٥] 1949-

Born in Shanghai, Yi Shu came to Hong Kong as a child. She published her first short story when she was fifteen and for several decades since then has been one of Hong Kong's most popular writers of romance fiction. Few readers now remember that early in Yi Shu's career she had written stories with a social message. Her best-known work is arguably Meigui de gushi G [Story of Rose] (1985) which has been adapted for radio and film. Yi Shu now lives in Canada.
