Taipei (Vintage Contemporaries)

By Tao Lin

A New York instances ebook Review Editor's Choice

"[A] modernist masterpiece. . . . precise, his characters are youth dwelling in Brooklyn. And he writes concerning the web. yet we must always cease calling Tao Lin the voice of his iteration. Taipei, his new novel, has much less to do together with his iteration than with the literary culture of Knut Hamsun, Ernest Hemingway, and Robert Musil. . . . I cheerfully wrote "Proust" within the margin early on—because the hero, a tender author named Paul, takes this kind of meta angle towards his personal memories."—Benjamin Lytal, New York Observer

"Here we have now a significant, high-quality novelist placing all his talents to work."—Clancy Martin, New York occasions booklet Review

"Mr. Lin casts a spell in Taipei. . . . [It is] his most powerful e-book. At its top, it has far away echoes of early Hemingway, as filtered via Twitter and Klonopin: it really is terse, impartial, composed of small and infrequently difficult gestures. . . . it really is approximately glints of belief, glints that the writer catches as though they have been fireflies."—Dwight Garner, New York Times

"Amazing. . . . the easiest author approximately what it is prefer to be f*cked up on medicinal drugs that i have ever read."—John Horgan, writer of The finish of Science

"One factor i admire approximately Tao's writing is how inappropriate for me 'liking' it feels -- it is a frank depiction of the rhythm of a latest attention or loss of attention and so it has an influence that bypasses these questions of flavor completely. love it or no longer, it has the strength of the real."—Ben Lerner, writer of Leaving the Atocha Station

"[A] novel approximately disaffection that is oddly affecting. . . . for all its emotional truth, Taipei is a ebook with out an oz. of self-pity, melodrama, or posturing."Publishers Weekly, starred review

"Lin is an existential author, quite, much less attracted to tracing the contours of his specific social crew than in describing the very own and infrequently insufferable tyranny of one's personal brain. . . . the novel's climactic scene. . . . builds over a number of pages to a revelation that, in its sheer unforeseen attractiveness, remembers the powerfully relocating finishing of David Markson's Wittgenstein's Mistress."Slate
