Pai Hsien-yung

Pai Hsien-yung, a famous Chinese writer who has been described as a 'melancholy pioneer'.
Pai's most famous work of fiction, Taipei People (1971), is a seminal work of Chinese
modernism that mixes both literary Chinese and experimental modernist techniques.
Pai's work is also far ahead of its time. His novel, Crystal Boys (1983), tells
the story of a group of homosexual youths living in 1960s Taipei largely from
the viewpoint of a young, gay runaway who serves as its main protagonist.

Pai is at the launch of 'The Inspired Island 2' Literature-Film Festival at The
University of Hong Kong with Lo Fu, a distinguished Taiwanese poet, Lin Wen-yue,
an important scholar, writer and translator from Taiwan, and Lau Yee-cheung,
a notable writer and novelist in Hong Kong.
