Our Stories is not only about the lives of individuals; it is also a collective and social history of Taiwan. This is the contribution of Yu-ling and the activists in solidarity with the marginalized and the grassroots for the past two decades.”
- J
eng Tsuen-chyi, founder of Raging Citizens Act Now (RCAN)
 
“Without Yu-Ling’s excellent book, will i ever cry for ‘Our Stories’? No. What Yu-ling has accomplished is to translate ‘Us’ for ‘Them’, so that they know…
- Hou Hsiao-hsien, internationally renowned film director
 
“Yu-ling has given an entirely new meaning to the international boundaries of ‘Us’. Her book has humbled, shamed and shocked us… this is a truly moving book.”
- Lo Yi-Chin, novelist
 
“This is a highly literary book; the author has successfully fused literature and reportage together. Yu-ling has given us a unique perspective about the new migrants in our society, and described each and every one of them in a sensitive and sophisticated way with ease. It is a book difficult to put down once you have started reading.”

uthor of De-imperialization: Asia as method
