Details

The classical Chinese story recounts the Chinese Don Juan's most famous affairs—his pursuit of the beautiful, seductive Madam Slender Li.

The classic of Chinese literature is charmingly retold in words and original illustrations by the well-known Hong Kong artist Kwan Shan-mei, in such a way as to recapture the full flavor of the original.

The romance book also provides remarkable insights into Chinese life and feelings, while the pictures, based upon careful research, give an authentic setting for a fascinating text.
