Chen Yu-hsuan

Born in 1982, Chen Yu-hsuan is one of the rising feathers of the new literary scene in Taiwan. Her latest novel It never snows in the South, published in 2020, recounts the socio-political upheavals of recent decades in Taiwan through the prism of those crossed by Kaohsiung, the country's second city. Fitting readily into the heritage of Taiwanese local literary writers of the 1970s and 1980s, Chen Yu-hsuan likes to focus his gaze on the most fragile fractions of Taiwanese society.
