One of Taiwan’s most celebrated authors, Wang Ting-Kuo was born in 1955. He began writing fiction when he was 18 and quickly took the literary world by storm, only to disappear from the literary scene when his soon-to-be father-in-law gave him a devastating ultimatum: either give up the precarious life of a writer or give up my daughter.
Having made his fortune, Ting-Kuo returned with a vengeance with My Enemy's Cherry Tree which has since won all of Taiwan’s major literary prizes. This novel marks his English-language debut.
