商品簡介

A writer struck with writer’s block seeks the assistance of the wild drunken god—Ji Gong. With his help, lives are revealed and secrets spill out from behind the “face” everyone is so eager to preserve. This collection of short stories covers a period from when the United States ceased to diplomatically recognize the Republic of China on Taiwan in 1979 to the end of martial law in 1987. Freedom is both desired and feared, and Taiwan must create a new national identity. Families try to adjust to shifts of power as traditional roles are shed, yet linger, and new ones are tentatively broached or bravely adopted. Individuals struggle between private dreams and collective aspirations. Among them, a model-turned-photographer supports her father’s former master from China; an American sinologist learns everything about Chinese culture except how to keep his Taiwanese wife; a Taiwanese businessman struggles with the mental illness of his eldest son. Interweaving their stories, the writer overhears a mad neighbor shouting her torment to the stars in indecipherable fragments. Ji Gong offers no solace other than to lift his liquor-filled hulu gourd and laugh.
