A Son of Taiwan: Stories of Government Atrocity by Howard Goldblatt and Sylvia Li-chun Lin

The pernicious effects of the White Terror in Taiwan went beyond actual acts of atrocity, as the citizens practiced self-censorship and passed their fears on to the next generation. For many years, this part of Taiwan’s past was talked about, if at all, with circumspection as the overriding principle. Literary representations often employed obscure references, which themselves could get the writers into serious trouble, or worse. The stories in this collection, though fictional in nature, expand our understanding of Taiwan’s postcolonial history and extend our memory of the past, in Taiwan’s pursuit of transitional justice.
