Books from Taiwan is a new initiative funded by the Taiwanese Ministry of Culture to introduce fiction and non-fiction to foreign publishers and readers alike. On this website you will find information about authors and books, along with who to contact in order to license translation rights. All titles featured are eligible for the National Museum of Taiwan Literature's Translation and Publication Grants Program.
In these pages you will travel from the disappearing saltpans of Taiwan's south, to the mean streets of Hong Kong and Taipei and on to a fantastical world where the children must wrest control from the adults... Literature is not defined by national borders. Books don't have passports and stories travel because of our curiosity. We hope the books introduced here will surprise in their variety and make you lose yourself, if only for a little while, within our stories.
