The Border as Fiction
The writers represented in The Border as Fiction: Writers of Taiwan are some of the most noted in Taiwan, and their age differences, experiences, and talents speak to the broad range, depth, diversity, and historical breadth and maturity of the literature. The tensions of this history, the complexity of the themes, and the dedication to truth in story telling reflect the incredible artistic achievements that these writers have attained. For Taiwan, the borders are not fiction, but for these writers, fiction has proved to be the best way to express their thoughts about the varying “borders” of their country and culture. In some respects, and in some cases, fiction becomes reality.
