Excellent example of experimental fiction. 21 July 1997
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I read this book in a class on Modern Chinese Literature, and it was the best book in the class. Truthfully, it was not for everyone. I know at least one member of the class who found the style daunting and difficult to swallow. But I loved it. Wang is a professor in Taiwan of modern European literature, and it shows. Traces of many modernist and post-modernist techniques show up in Backed Against the Sea, as well as a complex take on things uniqulely Chinese and Taiwanese. If you like Chinese fiction, European modernism and/or post-modernism, I highly recommend this book. It is not an easy read, but I find it well worth the pleasure
