Taipei, stories around the corner


Collectif .

This book which combines short stories of Taiwanese contemporary authors, proposes a dive in the atmosphere of the city of Taipei, such as it is felt by a series of characters often transplanted in the metropolis after political events, family dramas or for economic reasons. Among them, young people of diverse origins, confronted to painful moments of their existence, which wonder about their identity and their future. In interludes to these narratives sometimes bitter, dark and violent, breakaways in small restaurants in streets of the capital give to the reader some tasty halts. They are the works of Shu Kuo-chih, well known in Taiwan for its gastronomic chronicles.
