Taiwan Tales: Thirteen Short Stories from Contemporary Taiwan

Taiwan Tales: Thirteen Short Stories from Contemporary Taiwan Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The past decade has brought dramatic changes to Taiwan: more sophisticated industry, increased political freedoms, and greater challenges to traditional social relations. All the while, a new order has yet to be firmly established. Taiwan's writers have not ignored these transformations, and have addressed their work to the new situation with wit and ingenuity.

The thirteen short stories collected here serve as witness to the changes that have gripped Taiwanese society. Whether exposing assumptions about the gulf between rural and urban islanders, examining the aftermath of the island's Cultural Revolution, sex roles, the newly rich, or disentangling the effects of modernization, the author of each story presents the reader with a fully realized fiction that builds on and adds to our understanding of today's Taiwan.

Translated from the Chinese by the staff of the National Institute of Translation and Compilation, Taipei, these stories will appeal to all readers intrigued by the fictive portrait of a culture in transition.
