Abstract

Taiwanese fantasy novels are few. This translation of Liu Zhi-Yu’s award-winning debut novel Miss Where seeks to bring the book to the attention of a western audience sure to appreciate a tour-de-force of creativity in the best fantasy tradition. Owing something to Neil Gaiman’s novel Neverwhere as well as Peter Pan’s Neverland, the fantasy land of Mishi-hui introduced in the novel blends the best of western and eastern fantasy traditions.
