Taiwanese Book List

Here’s a list of some English-language books, both fiction and nonfiction, for varying age groups, that a) focus on Taiwan, b) feature Taiwanese people/characters (including diaspora), and/or c) are written by Taiwanese/diasporic Taiwanese authors. Title hyperlinks lead to the Goodreads pages for those respective books. (Disclaimer: Inclusion in the list does not constitute an endorsement of the book. I’ve attached my review of a book where applicable.)

You can check out my post index for interviews with Taiwanese authors and other Taiwanese bookish posts.
