Description
From the preeminent writer of Taiwanese nativist fiction and the leading translator of Chinese literature come these poignant accounts of everyday life in rural and small-town Taiwan. Huang is frequently cited as one of the most original and gifted storytellers in the Chinese language, and these selections reveal his genius.
In "The Two Sign Painters, " TV reporters ambush two young workers from the country taking a break atop a twenty-four-story building. "His Sons Big Doll" introduces the tortured soul inside a walking advertisement, and in "Xiaoqis Cap" a dissatisfied pressure-cooker salesman is fascinated by a young schoolgirl.
Huangs characters -generally the uneducated and disadvantaged who must cope with assaults on their traditionalism, hostility from their urban brethren and, of course, the debilitating effects of poverty -come to life in all their human uniqueness, free from idealization.
