After her son, Moshe Foster, moved to Taiwan in the winter of 2005, Susan Chase-Foster began a series of visits during which the pair explored remote areas of the island, as well as the maze of lanes, alleys, mountains, markets, parks and architecture of Taipei, a city of nearly 3 million people, and a million scooters. In Xiexie Taipei moments of geographical and cultural discovery are captured in what Susan calls “poemoirs,” and in Moshe’s finely rendered black and white photographs.
