How the Night Chrysanthemums Began to March


Fiction | 

All Ages

The essays in this book encourage readers to reflect on the land, the self, and globalization. Yung-Feng Chung shares how he and his orchestral friends sang songs lamenting the floodlights that had turned night into day in sleepy rural villages in the race to profit from the demand for fresh-cut chrysanthemum flowers. In his essays, we too hear song after song about the changes overtaking rural Taiwan.
