These are tales of women making lives for themselves in the big city: commuting to office jobs, enjoying cooking for one, and wandering through the historic streets with an old friend. In the city, everyone is playing a role in their own stories, and our author depicts those ordinary yet meaningful scenes of everyday life, building up a Taipei tapestry.
