The Vancouver Writers Fest presents
56. The Fascinating World(s) of Wu Ming-Yi
WU MING-YI, DARRYL STERK
Moderator: Anna Ling Kaye
A stirring evening with one of Taiwan's most influential contemporary authors and his nuanced, multidisciplinary approach to literature.
Wu Ming-Yi’s meditative and absorbing The Stolen Bicycle cemented his position as one of Taiwan’s most influential contemporary authors, winning the Taiwan Literary Award and longlisted for the Man Booker International Prize. Searching for his bike, a writer becomes pulled into unexpected worlds, immersing himself in Taiwan’s butterfly industry, Japanese military history and the secret network of antique bicycle collectors. Wu Ming-Yi and his English translator Darryl Sterk join Journey Prize shortlisted writer Anna Ling Kaye for a fascinating conversation on the real histories, both personal and national, woven into this globally acclaimed, ambitious epic. Speaking to his nuanced and multidisciplinary approach, this is a stirring introduction to one of Taiwan’s most ground-breaking modern talents.
Presented in partnership with the World Literature program at SFU.
