Readings and Discussion with Lung Yingtai

Snail sex, demanding deities, a cold case - everyday life in Taiwan holds the most unbelievable stories in store. Lung Ying-Tai compiled them in her first novel. Where does the journey to “Under Mount Kavulungan” take us? Taiwan's most famous author explores the complex answers to this question. Philosophical young adult novel, nature writing, nativist literature, an escapist zeitgeist portrait, thriller or love story - \"Under Mount Kavulungan\" offers many ways of reading – on which themes did Lung Ying-Tai's focus during the writing? Why did she choose southern Taiwan as the protagonist of her novel? Found in translation – do we read the work differently in German and Chinese?
