Sweet as an Apple Short Stories

Recently I have been trying out some new and different literature, and in the process I happened upon a book called The Taste of Apples by Taiwanese author Huang Chunming. This is a compilation of short stories which vary in topic but all deal with issues that arise not only in public social spheres, but also in private family life. A lot of these give us a sneak peak at life in Taiwan in the 1940s – which is an added bonus as this was a very interesting time in history. Even though some of these stories are a bit sad, they are definitely worth the read. For those of us who can’t read Chinese there is an excellent English translation available (done by Howard Goldblatt). Enjoy! :)
