  • Abstract

Kao Yi-feng, is a writer, scriptwriter and director. His works were given numerous awards.   Bubble Wars (no English edition) illustrates a community where the children are resentful of the adults who are negative and incapable of solving the problem of water shortage. The children occupy the management committee, take over the adults’ position, and try to manage the community in their own way. They observe the world through a childlike perspective and recognize the importance of being someone who knows how to resist, until the bubbles burst. Not merely an allegorical novel, this book is also seen as a novel predicting the Taiwanese student protest movement occurring in March 2014.   Gwennaël Gaffric, the translator, is currently an associate professor at the University Jean Moulin Lyon 3, France. He is also the translator of Kao Yi-feng’s other novel L'Asile des illusions (extraits), and the chief editor of the Taiwan Fiction collection in L'Asiathèque.
