Starvation, disease, torture and loss…The Alien Realm leads you into the virgin forests of the Sino-Burmese borderland, to experience the extraordinary human struggles during the guerilla warfare in the wake of the Chinese civil war in 1949. This harrowing story has been a best-seller for over 40 years (although for a time it was banned in Taiwan for its political content) and was adapted into two award-nominated films. Bo Yang is a prolific writer based in Taiwan. Known as the ‘Chinese Voltaire’, he was once imprisoned for his political beliefs. Hs is now a member of Amnesty International in Taiwan and also active in the local civil rights movement.
