I’m desparately in need of something good to read in Chinese, but there are a few conditions -
(1) It has to be contemporary.
(2) Preferably about Taiwan, though something ‘fun’ from the Mainland might be OK (i.e. please no my-fucked-life-as-a-Chinese books such as Wild Swans).
(3) My brain is like putty at the moment, and I’ve got no patience for complicated plotlines a-la Hongliu Meng.
(4) Not too much moralizing along the lines of stuff by Yao Hui-ying.
