A Love Letter Not Sent

A Love Letter Not Sent (Taipei: Hong Fan Publishing House, 1986)

This book collects all the recent short stories by Li Ang, and further explores life’s obstacles, the characters’ defiance and their redemption. Li Ang skillfully unveils the entanglement of love and sex, and in the midst of hesitation and melancholy, she recognizes human dignity, attacks hypocrisy, and sympathizes with the innocent. Her courage to persistently explore issues has grabbed the attention of literary circles and renders her the most representative avant-garde novelist in Taiwan. This book not only shows Li Ang’s usual writing style, but also reveals a rare sentiment. We cannot help feeling shock and sighing at the same time. --- Translated by Min-min Liang
