He was one Hong Kong’s most recognisable news anchor, a pioneer of TV journalism in Asia in the period that spanned Tiananmen and the rise of Cable.

Now Peter Maize has published his first novel, a tale of a young man who unwittingly alters the life of an ambitious TV journalist in Hong Kong. Their paths converge on Beijing during the crest of the Tiananmen Square democracy protests.

ZOOM OUT charts the intersecting journeys of a driven young woman and a lost young man; journeys that wind through Asia, addiction and occasional absurdity.

"... its colourful and lively descriptions ... make for compelling reading... The penetrating portrayal of life in Asia keeps the pages turning." -- HK Magazine.
