Abstract

Sterk translates the literary work "The stolen bicycle" 《單車失竊記》, written by Wu Ming-Yi (吳明益). It is an intimate portrait of a Taiwanese family, a history of the bicycle industry, and a collage of magical, heart-wrenching stories. The book follows Cheng, a novelist, who once wrote a book about his father’s childhood and his disappearance twenty years ago. One day he receives a reader’s email asking whether his father’s bicycle disappeared as well. Perplexed and amused, Cheng decides to track down the bicycle, which was stolen years ago. The journey takes him to a scavenger’s treasure trove, the mountain home of an aboriginal photographer, deep into the secret world of antique bicycle collectors, and ultimately to his own heart.
