Miah means “fate” in Taiwanese. These linked, subtly understated stories trace the lives of three generations on Taiwanese, from the brutal Japanese occupation of their island in the early twentieth century to the “White Terror” that followed under the exiled Chinese Mainlanders and the Kuomintang, and finally to modern times. Gracefully evocative, informative, and humane, these stories offer a rare look at Taiwanese and modern Canadian life that is historical, personal, and completely honest.
