"[A] novel approximately disaffection that is oddly affecting. . . . for all its emotional fact, Taipei is a e-book with no an oz. of self-pity, melodrama, or posturing."Publishers Weekly, starred review

"Lin is an existential author, particularly, much less attracted to tracing the contours of his specific social workforce than in describing the very own and occasionally insufferable tyranny of one's personal brain. . . . the novel's climactic scene. . . . builds over a couple of pages to a revelation that, in its sheer unforeseen attractiveness, remembers the powerfully relocating finishing of David Markson's Wittgenstein's Mistress."Slate

Matthias Jänicke, Lehrer und nicht mehr ganz jung, tritt seine erste Stelle an. Das gemächliche Landleben behagt ihm durchaus. Idyllische Impressionen lassen ihn, zumindest eine Zeitlang, an eine heile Welt glauben. Doch der schöne Schein trügt. Schon bald muß er erkennen, daß speedy jeder Dorfbewohner etwas zu verbergen hat. Mißgunst und kleine Skandale sind an der Tagesordnung, werden jedoch vor dem Fremden sorgfältig verborgen. Der dörfliche Mikrokosmos widersetzt sich allen Versuchen des Lehrers, in dessen Inneres vorzudringen. So bleibt er der geduldete Beobachter, dessen Alltag zwischen zufälligen Liebeleien, Schulstunden und gelegentlichen Jagdausflügen verrinnt.
Dabei käme es für ihn jetzt wirklich darauf an: Es ist bereits sein dritter Anlauf, eine bürgerliche Existenz zu gründen...
