    MOBI Pai Hsien-yung ☆ 臺北人 Kindle ↠ ☆ 臺北人 free, 臺北人 Kindle Taipei People or 台北人 is a collection of uiet understated and brilliant short stories by Pai Hsien Yung 白先勇 Dealing with the lives of the Chinese diaspora who fled to Taiwan after the fall of the Nationalist government the title is deliberately ironic It would be as if a collection of short stories entirely about the Russians that fled Russia to America after the fall of Nicolas II were titled “New Yorker

    MOBI Pai Hsien-yung ☆ 臺北人 Kindle ↠ ☆ 臺北人 free, 臺北人 KindlePai Hsien yung's spare and sympathetic story collection about displaced Chinese in Taipei necessarily orbits around bereavement and its aftermath Whether it's old friends wartime glory Shanghai ballrooms or other metonymic stand ins for pasts and the Mainland itself each story is underlaid with currents of pasts peoples and places that can never by definition be recovered Reminds me of something Stuart Hall wrote that diasporic peoples while away

    MOBI Pai Hsien-yung ☆ 臺北人 Kindle ↠ ☆ 臺北人 free, 臺北人 KindleAs a teenager the main reason why I loved to read literature was that I could meet new people I had no position or time to meet in real life to such an intimate extentMany books actually fail to live up to that cliché with characters that are flat and never open up The stories that make up Taipei People however gave me than I wanted and multiple times I h

    MOBI Pai Hsien-yung ☆ 臺北人 Kindle ↠ ☆ 臺北人 free, 臺北人 KindleI read a bilingual copy of this book with English on the left hand side and Chinese on the right This book is uite famous in Taiwan but I never could get into the stories They seemed sad with little action Maybe after I have been in Taiwan awhile they might mean to me but I never could get excited about this book compared to other Taiwanese fiction that I really enjoyed

    MOBI Pai Hsien-yung ☆ 臺北人 Kindle ↠ ☆ 臺北人 free, 臺北人 KindleThe book is titled Taipei People but the stories are mostly about people who moved from Mainland China to Taipei Taiwan There are common themes in this collection of stories retired military officers or their wives prominent people in China who escaped to Taiwan and missing the old times and some other sad stories It’s in general a very depressing book These stories aren’t very deep although the author writes beautifully Perhaps a little too much focus on the words than trying to tell good stories This book might be relevant at the time it was published but decades later the fact that there are so few local Taiwanese characters in the book is a glaring flaw to a book of such a title

    MOBI Pai Hsien-yung ☆ 臺北人 Kindle ↠ ☆ 臺北人 free, 臺北人 KindleA really good set of short stories told from the perspectives of people who resettled from China to Taiwan in in 1950s The narrators range from prostitutes to military leaders to maids and they all have interesting things to say about the turns their lives have taken and the compromises they have been forced to make along the way I did fall asleep a lot while reading this and feel compelled to disclose that I am reluctant to blame the bo

    MOBI Pai Hsien-yung ☆ 臺北人 Kindle ↠ ☆ 臺北人 free, 臺北人 KindleGiven his background it isn't surprising that his short stories are focusing on the lives of former military officers and their families after they settled in Taiwan There are a couple of stories which I found interesting while there are some which I found mediocre It has some historical values for reference to that specific period

    MOBI Pai Hsien-yung ☆ 臺北人 Kindle ↠ ☆ 臺北人 free, 臺北人 KindleThis is a reread for me or at least some of the short stories in this book Pai Hsien Yung is one of my all time favorite authors besides Oscar Wilde I first read his works in my mother language Chinese when I was still in primary and was mesmerised by his writing Love the way he writes about his characters the sadness and loneliness stayed with me long after I read his books He is the master in details I tried reading the English edition of it even tho it was
