Sex & Taipei City, 19 stories set in Taipei, Taiwan, depict how women (and some men) navigate the dangers of love, sex, and power in a big city. Sex in Taipei City is not what one expects: it is repressed, traded for cash, vengeful, occasionally fun, sometimes awkward and almost always a secret.
“Contemporary Taiwan's contradictions come to life in Yu-Han Chao's wonderful and gossipy collection Sex and Taipei City. The urban denizens that populate Chao's words are modern only in appearance and they helplessly careen toward their strange destinies, conveyed by age-old superstition and the failures of intimacy. These are the stories shared between rounds of karaoke that are so juicy and awful, you don't realize it when your song comes on.” --Ed Lin, author of Ghost Month
“Yu-Han's fiction amazes me: brave, witty, and provocative. She transports her readers not only to the mysteries of Taipei but also into her surrealist universe, constantly surprising and thrilling. One of the most intelligent and exciting writers at work today.” --Josip Novakovich, author of The Heritage of Smoke
