    China has been a wellspring of storytelling for over 2,000 years. Sadly, this fantastic literature is little known in the west outside the halls of academia, though a handful of recent 20th century authors have attained a respectable following. The stories in this volume date from the sixth century A.D. to the early part of the 20th century, and will give the listener a good feel for the subject. Astonishingly, the Chinese enjoyed from the earliest times many of the genres we take for granted today.

    Die Falknerin says: "Another great story collection"
    "Classic Chinese Short Stories, Volume 1"
    Overall

    This selection of classical Chinese short stories introduces English-speaking listeners to the best of traditional tales of China. They are read with outstanding characterisation, intonation and passion, transporting listeners to a foreign place and time. The strangeness, mystery and colour of China blends with attributes common to all humankind to build bridges between Western tales of antiquity and the Orient.
