Book Description | Table of Contents
Chapter 1 [in PDF format]

ADDITIONAL REVIEWS:

"One can only begin to appreciate the work that has gone into this volume, with its numerous pages of notes, bibliography and index, and to the five volumes as a whole. . . . We are indebted to Professor Roy. The novel is a masterwork of Chinese fiction, and we celebrate the completion of his translation."--Andrew Lo, Bulletin of the School of Oriental and African Studies

"The immensity of David Tod Roy’s achievement in the eld of literary translation can hardly be overstated. . . . We are all . . . tremendously indebted to Roy’s erudition and his indefatigable work of defamiliarization. No one can ever look at a proverb with the same complacency after reading Roy’s translation. "--Maria Franca Sibau, Journal of the American Oriental Society

Praise for the previous volume: "[A] book of manners for the debauched. Its readers in the late Ming period likely hid it under their bedcovers."--Amy Tan, New York Times Book Review
