Language scholar’s work wins Hong Kong Book Prize

浸大學者著作獲香港書獎

Prose collection: Jiang Yuqiu’s precious memories, a book edited by Dr Chu Siu-cheung, Senior Lecturer of the Language Centre, won an award in the 10th Hong Kong Book Prize competition.

Dr Chu is pleased to have received the award. He said it is his honour to edit this collection of articles by renowned Cantonese opera playwright in Hong Kong Jiang Yuqiu, and he considered the prize a recognition and encouragement for his work collecting and editing literary materials.

Prose collection: Jiang Yuqiu’s precious memories is an anthology and reorganisation by Dr Chu of Jiang’s 400 columns published in newspapers between 1964 and 1965. The articles reveal Jiang’s memories of his personal life and experiences, and also give his views on life, values, religion and art.

The Hong Kong Book Prize, co-organised by Radio Television Hong Kong and the Hong Kong Publishing Federation, promotes quality reading and recognises outstanding Chinese books.

文學院語文中心高級講師朱少璋博士編訂的《小蘭齋雜記》,最近獲得第10屆香港書獎。

朱博士表示,能為前輩南海十三郎編訂這套文集,十分榮幸,而對文集能獲獎,十分高興。他說,獎項是對文學材料整理工作的具體肯定,而這份肯定,給他莫大的鼓舞。

《小蘭齋雜記》是朱博士收集並整理一代著名粵劇編劇家南海十三郎(江譽鏐)於1964至1965年間親筆撰寫的400多篇報章專欄文章,按刊登日期,編成三冊文集。當中既回憶個人及家族往事,也有提及香港生活實況;又涉及梨園掌故、名伶逸事趣聞,以及曲文節錄、劇藝心得等。文章亦觸及交遊、病況、時事等主題,也透露他的價值觀、人生觀、宗教觀和藝術觀。

香港書獎由香港電台和香港出版總會合辦,旨在推動優質閱讀,表揚優秀中文出版書籍。
