He translated the first of Wu Ming-Yi’s novels to be published in English, The Man with the Compound Eyes.Taiwan Literary Award, 2015 (Taiwan)China Times Open Book Award (Six-time winner, including 2015) (Taiwan)Eslite Bookseller Award for Author of the Year, 2015 (Taiwan)Dream of the Red Chamber Award, Judge Recommendation 2016 (Hong Kong)UDN Grand Literary Award, 2016 (Taiwan)Publishers Weekly International Hot Book Properties, 2015Turnaround Favourite Fiction of 2017‘A work of astonishing energy, in which Wu beautifully touches on loss, life and death, fate and destiny, establishing emotional connections between memory and objects, and between the natural world and war... a novel that provides comfort and reconciliation from a wounded past.’ Thinking Taiwan‘The novel, inspired by his love for bicycles and Taiwanese history, brings readers back to a simpler time when life moved more slowly and people spent more time face-to-face with friends and neighbors. Riding a bike allowed people to appreciate and digest the details of the world around them.’ Taipei Times‘A profoundly moving novel, such is the power of words and depth of feeling by Taiwanese author Wu Ming-Yi…He turns events into linguistic gold with his poetic, dreamlike language.’ Good Reading‘A visionary ride through flame-scorched lands and machine-clutching trees and metamorphoses into metal and earth…"World is crazier and more of it than we think, Incorrigibly plural", Louis MacNeice wrote…Multiply that by 10 or so and you get some sense of Wu’s astonishing, often-affecting kaleidoscope.’ NZ Listener‘Unusual insights and vividly observed detail abound in this witty and sensitive story.’ Toowoomba Chronicle‘Beautifully written and beautifully translated. . . . [Ming-Yi] guides us to see the entirety of experience as bumping flotsam in an unending ocean of life colliding and making a mess of things or making something new. . . . Lyric, simple, soft, the story crests and recedes and comes back again.’ The Bloomington Sun-Current‘Offering a heady dose of realism, surrealism, and magic realism, with several shots of allegory, award-winning Chinese author Wu [Ming-Yi] offers a work for ‘literary fiction’ readers, but not in the snobbish sense. It’s really for any curious, intelligent reader.’ STARRED review, Library Journal‘The authors uses conversation, flashbacks of memory, war diaries, memoir and voice recordings to create a network of literary tributaries in bringing together this ambitious, far-reaching narrative that touches so many unique aspects of Taiwan’s history, culture, development and influences.’ Word by Word
