Outskirts Press Announces Nobody: A Novel by a Taiwanese Author, the Latest Highly-Anticipated Fiction Book from Taipei, Taiwan Author Chen Yu-Te


Taipei, Taiwan, January 16, 2009 --(PR.com)-- Outskirts Press, Inc. has published Nobody: A Novel by a Taiwanese Author by Chen Yu-Te, which is the author’s most recent book to date. The 6.14 x 9.21 paperback in the Fiction category is available worldwide on book retailer websites such as Amazon and Barnes & Noble for a suggested retail price of $11.95. The webpage at www.outskirtspress.com/nobody was launched simultaneously with the book’s publication.

About the Book (Excerpts & Info)

Amid the economic and cultural upheaval taking place in Taiwan in the mid-twentieth century, the narrator of Nobody finds success in the emerging plastics industry. With a booming business and growing family, he appears to have it all. Then problems at the business reverberate through his personal life. With unpaid debts, the book’s unnamed subject finds himself on the run from the authorities–wanted under a cruel law that carries prison terms for bad checks. Add to that a philandering lifestyle destined to complicate matters, and the stage is set for a dramatic shift in fortunes.

At once startling and deeply moving, Nobody details one man’s devastating slide into emotional and financial turmoil–and his unceasing drive to get back on track. Through it all, a series of lovers will prove to be his most steadfast allies. But this richly detailed and true-life work is also a rare peek inside an era of Taiwanese business and culture, where strict precepts on behavior and mores mask a climate in which even the slightest missteps carry severe consequences...

Deftly constructed at 116 pages, Nobody: A Novel by a Taiwanese Author is being aggressively promoted to appropriate markets with a focus on the Fiction category. With U.S. wholesale distribution through Ingram and Baker & Taylor, and pervasive online availability through Amazon, Barnes & Noble and elsewhere, Nobody: A Novel by a Taiwanese Author meets consumer demand through both retail and library markets with a suggested retail price of $11.95.

Additionally, Nobody: A Novel by a Taiwanese Author can be ordered by retailers or wholesalers for the maximum trade discount price set by the author in quantities of ten or more from the Outskirts Press wholesale online bookstore at www.outskirtspress.com/buybooks
