Scales Of Injustice
Translated by Darryl Sterk
Lōa Hô (also Lai He, 1894 1943) was a pioneering writer from Taiwan often called the 'father of New Taiwanese Literature'. As a doctor during the colonial period in Taiwan, Lōa witnessed the cruelty of Japanese rule and wrote stories which display both his sense of justice and social insight. His writing often utilized irony and satire to criticize the status quo, and his work provides a fascinating window into the struggle for Taiwanese self-determination during the early twentieth century.
Scales of Injustice contains the complete fiction of Lōa Hô, with an expert introduction from Pei-yin Lin and explanatory notes by translator Darryl Sterk.
