      Taipei Metro

      June 12, 2013

      For the past couple of months, in celebration of last week's release of Tao Lin's latest novel, Taipei, we have been featuring a weekly selection of photos taken by the author during his recent trip to Taipei, Taiwan. While there, he took thousands of pictures with his iPhone, pictures which he has divided into albums titled things like "Taipei fashion," "Taipei carbs," "Taipei babies," and "Taipei signs," among others. In the final installment, Tao takes us inside Taipei's extensive subway system.

      Taipei is out now from Vintage and you can buy it here. To read an excerpt from the novel that we published a while back, click here.
