User Review  - HadriantheBlind - LibraryThing

A remarkable short story, about a man who is relentlessly proud of his 'spiritual victories', after he gets beaten up, humiliated, and gets his head sliced off while trying to think of a line from Chinese opera to quote. Thick with allegory. Need to get more from this author. Read full review

User Review  - wildbill - LibraryThing

The author in a very short book is able to convey what it was like to live in China just before the revolution. The book is also a sharp satire on the corruption of Chinese society at that time. I enjoyed the book and expect that I will learn more when I read it again. Read full review
