I'm near Taoyuan.

I'm taking this off the air, since dasboot and i are the only ones keeping interest in this. message one of us if you want to join in.

Apparently....

Anyway, the new book is "Bound Feet: Stories of Contemporary Taiwan" by Catherine Dai (1992 ed.).

It looks like we're heading in a Taiwanese lit. direction.

That sounds like a good read. I'm in Yilan but would trek up to Taipei if you guys are meeting to discuss the book. Also might have to trek up there just to buy it ;)
