80’S DIARY IN TAIWAN

These are the stories of our generation. Back then, posters were hanging everywhere telling us to take back China and every time we went to the cinema, we had to stand up and sing the national anthem. End of year exams pressed heavy on our young shoulders, and we played baseball with nothing more than sticks and pieces of newspaper as gloves. Only when martial law was lifted in 1987 did things start to change, people took to the streets to protest and the politicians fought in the chamber, pirate VHS flooded the streets and beer shacks were rammed with people...

With his unique writing style and point of view, Sean Chuang’s ‘80s Diary in Taiwan captures many warm moments of a bygone era. Perhaps they evoke a little embarrassment, and perhaps even regret, but even more so, this is a book that conveys the poignant feeling or relief. Through these twelve episodes, let’s pay our respects to our long gone youth.
