Book review: Stranger in Taiwan, by Hartley Pool

Set in Taiwan, Hartley Pool’s comic novel reads like a comedy routine and is likely to resonate with anyone who has shared similar experiences

By Bradley Winterton  /  Contributing Reporter

By and large, though, this is a novel marked by a farcical breeziness, and you feel you ought to be hearing the author reading it aloud to get its full flavor. It’s not really a novel as such, but it’s no worse for that.

Stranger in Taiwan is available from Amazon both as a paperback and as a Kindle download, and is on sale in the UK, though apparently not yet in bookshops in Taiwan.
