Tao Lin

This article is not about comparing who is good or bad, how a writer should write, how a writer should live, how one should do anything. This will be about differences, like differences between mountains, The Rocky Mountains are beautiful, the Himalayas are beautiful, there is no reason to discuss which one is better,

In refusing to label ‘Taipei’ “autobiography,” Lin troubles not only the meaningfulness of the distinction between “fiction” and “nonfiction,” but also the very notions of truth and falsity that underlie attempts to understand and order.

Tao extended his hand to me, but he was still holding the salad container, which left me only his forefinger and middle finger to shake. I laughed and Tao walked past me to throw out the container, muttering something about trying to shake my hand.
