Sterk translates the literary fiction "War of the Bubbles" 《泡沫戰爭》, written by Kao Yi-Feng (高翊峰). "War of the Bubbles" is an energetic, fast-paced novel, a poetic fantasy written with passion. It is an exploration of the tensions between the people and those who govern, and the ways in which we are forced to do things we don't want to by the system in which we live. This book questions the essence of the human condition, the pull between our individual desires and the needs of the group, as well as the loss of innocence as we grow to understand the world around us better. This is at once serious satire, and seriously entertaining literature.
