huang jiajun, novelist, son of famous taiwanese writer huang chunming, committed suicide a week ago by hanging himself in the balcony of their family home. i wanted to write an entry about him but - i find that - to say anything is trite - and in part because i'm processing this news in chinese. so for sinophones you can read the article from zaobao for yourselves - a tragic story, and also a partial portrait of the artist as a young man.
