Book description
LONGLISTED FOR THE MAN BOOKER INTERNATIONAL PRIZE 2018

"Closely observed with a wistful melancholy ... this is a novel anchored in the gritty mess of what it means to remember and to exist as an individual." (The Guardian)

An intimate portrait of a Taiwanese family, a history of the bicycle industry, and a collage of magical, heart-wrenching stories.

The Stolen Bicycle has sold over 10,000 copies in Taiwan.

Cheng, a novelist, once wrote a book about his father's disappearance twenty years ago. One day he receives a reader's email asking whether his father's bicycle disappeared as well. Perplexed and amused, Cheng decides to track down the bicycle, which was stolen years ago.

The journey takes him to a scavenger's treasure trove, the mountain home of an aboriginal photographer, deep into the secret world of antique bicycle collectors, and ultimately to his own heart.
