Wu Chuo-liu (Chinese: 吳濁流; pinyin: Wú Zhuóliú) (1900–1976) was an influential Taiwanese journalist and novelist. His experiences during the Japanese period, including fifteen months (January 1941-March 1942) spent in Republican China, served as an inspiration for his most famous work, Orphan of Asia, a semi-autobiographical account of the experiences of a fictional protagonist—Hu Taiming (Chinese: 胡太明)—during the course of the colonial period. This work, which highlighted the ambiguity and tension inherent in being Taiwanese, has since become a key text in the contentious subject of Taiwanese identity. He is also known for his autobiography The Fig Tree (Chinese: 無花果).
