For the Time Being
From the commuter experience of an office worker, to a single girl enjoying a meal alone, to cat lovers crossing paths in the middle of the night, to a cross-generation romance, For the Time Being is a collection of 9 short stories of the city. In this semi-autobiographical work, author and illustrator Pei-Hsiu Chen brings to life the streets and scenes of Taipei, Taiwan; ordinary easy-to-understand conversations illuminate the alienation and self-reflection of the modern urban experience and the manners and attitudes of the modern city girl.
