作為一個具爭議性的作家,李昂寫性、 政治權力,以及最近處理到的迷姦、藥物與死亡,究竟什麼才最干犯 社會禁忌 、道德?是性、政治、還是藥物?

As a controversial writer, Li Ang is always provocative. She tackles topics that are usually taboo and challenges traditional social prohibitions and taken-for-granted moralities, such as female desire, sexuality, sexual politics, rape, drugs, and death. This has led her to consider issues of societal morality, sexual repression, and the violence of traditional norms and socialization.
