    1 thought on “Tales from China”

    1. It's a good collection, but without historical context, I'm not sure exactly where these stories are coming from. Other collections I've read tell the cultural source, have glossaries, pronunciation guides… Just seems a bit lacking. Also, the back description reads "These magical tales from China will bring to life all the mystery and wonder of the East." Very Orientalist description. I'd be careful of using this in any academic research.
