Hock Tjoa is in the process of self-publishing a translation of selections from The Romance of the Three Kingdoms, a long work by Luo Guanzhong, who published it around 1400 A.D. (although the earliest version that now exists is from the mid-16th century). The events themselves took place in the early 3rd century A.D. Luo added much material about the events that were not part of the historical records–poems, skits and stories by street entertainers, etc.
Hock went to college at Brandeis and graduate school at Harvard, then taught for a while at the University of Malaya. A second career in banking and finance followed after a brief re-potting experience at UCLA. Although retired, he teaches part-time at Sierra College (accounting). Hock also dabbles in community theater. He and his wife are empty nesters as their two daughters have left to find themselves.
