City Women: Contemporary Taiwan Women Writers
Edited by Eva Hung
Five brilliant women writers from Taiwan confront issues facing women in intensely urban environments like Taipei. These stories are profound explorations of human nature, gender manipulation and the sense of isolation that mark life in a fast-changing metropolis.
'Taipei is arguably the most distinctive and under-appreciated city in Asia, but these five stories by Taiwanese women authors render it with an immediacy that is positively tactile.'
