Wang Wenxing (1939-) is a Taiwanese writer who is sometimes referred to as the Flaubert of China. Writing only 35 words a day, it usually takes him a very long time to write his books. His most famous novel, The Man against the Sea (a mere 130 pages translated into English as Backed against the Sea) had taken him twenty-five years to complete.
"Written as the ludicrous and disturbing ramblings of an errant, pseudo-intellectual urbanite secluding himself from the underworld in an impoverished coastal village of Taiwan in the early 1960s, this novel prompted the first critical discussion of postmodernism in Chinese fiction and still stands as the most provocative and innovative narrative published in Taiwan over the past two decades."
