  • About the Edition

    When the Nationalists lost China in 1949, many of them left behind their families as they retreated to Taiwan. A half century later, through democratic elections, they lost control over Taiwan as well and began looking to a new and powerful China, where their relatives had grown rich, for a sense of identity and economic support, thus laying the groundwork for the growing integration between Taiwan and China. As exchanges across the Taiwan Strait increased, many separated families finally met after years of dreaming about each other in hope and in sorrow, through many eras and disast.

    Read this book on Questia. In , I edited the Chinese collection, Selected Short Stories by Six Taiwanese of the criteria used in my selection process were: that the writers represented be of Taiwanese origin and that their stories be a genuine reflection of the native sentiments about Taiwan.
