A New York occasions ebook Review Editor's Choice
"[A] modernist masterpiece. . . . real, his characters are youth dwelling in Brooklyn. And he writes concerning the web. yet we must always cease calling Tao Lin the voice of his new release.

"Amazing. . . . the simplest author approximately what it truly is wish to be f*cked up on medicinal drugs that i have ever read."—John Horgan, writer of The finish of Science
"One factor i admire approximately Tao's writing is how irrelevant for me 'liking' it feels -- it is a frank depiction of the rhythm of a latest attention or loss of cognizance and so it has an influence that bypasses these questions of style totally. love it or now not, it has the strength of the real."—Ben Lerner, writer of Leaving the Atocha Station
"[A] novel approximately disaffection that is oddly affecting. . . . for all its emotional truth, Taipei is a e-book with no an oz. of self-pity, melodrama, or posturing."—Publishers Weekly, starred review
"Lin is an existential author, relatively, much less drawn to tracing the contours of his specific social staff than in describing the very own and infrequently 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 good looks, recollects the powerfully relocating finishing of David Markson's Wittgenstein's Mistress."—Slate
