This book, first published in 1956, contains the stuff of other people’s memories. Thus you will read of magicians and immortals; of dragons and pills of eternal life; of generals and eunuchs; of emperors and poets; of palaces and concubines. The author has made nothing up; if there are liars along the route, they were there before he came along. The study of stories and ballads from deep in a country’s past can tell a reader much about the present-day culture of a society; this is surely true with these tales from China’s history.
