The inaugural winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Autobiography was "Stay True: A Memoir" by Taiwanese author Hwa Hsu. Through its vintage narrative style, it chronicles a period of time spent with friends, evoking a sense of nostalgia and poetic reflection. "Stay True" serves as the sign-off phrase between the protagonist, Hwa Hsu, and his friend Ah Jian. While Hwa Hsu dismisses it as youthful banter, it serves as the overarching theme of the memoir. Today, let's talk about life from the perspectives of simplicity and sincerity.
