YesAsia Editorial Description

Taiwan literature and film become one in The Inspired Island documentary series. A unique and meaningful project to document and preserve Taiwan's rich literary tradition, the series' six films by five up-and-coming directors offer tribute to the lives and achievements of six eminent writers.

Wang Wen Xing writes only 35 characters a day but the process is fierce; he literally attacks the paper with his pen. The Man Behind the Book probes the mind of the modernist pioneer long considered Taiwan's most enigmatic novelist. Director Lin Jing Jie (The Most Distant Course) brings Wang's works to life through theatrical performances and animation intertwined with interviews, providing unprecedented insight into the creative world of the man behind the groundbreaking novels Family Catastrophe and Backed Against the Sea.

This edition comes with a book about the writer and 112 minutes of behind-the-scenes footage.
