"I was familiar with Tao Lin prior to reading Taipei. I have read all his books and closely follow his publishing house, Muumuu House. I've always found him far more pleasure to think about and analyze than to read, and this held true for Taipei. Lin's writes introspectively about living in the 21st century, and his prose is stunning, but I didn't find myself dying to find out what happens to his characters. That sounds like a condemnation, but it's not. I was rattled by Lin's writing, but I was not captivated by it."Michelle King
