Just hanging out with my friend!    Most of these stories are fiction, but still requiring a decent background in Chinese history and some ability for literary analysis. I'm not even close to a complete understanding of many of them, but the insight these stories have given me into Chinese history have been among the most pleasurable. This book is indispensable for anyone who wishes to understand modern China; Lu is a great Chinese writer.

I think Graham Joyce takes the sceptre from the predecessors of speculative fiction. Some Kind of Fairy Tale is the kind of book where a reappearance of someone lost throws every other person around in a flurry of mystery and speculation. A story not like any other where a darker truth is packaged with the highly refined beauty of magic & the supernatural & presented in such an elegant way that the frantic readers are put to ease at last as the veil of doubt is lifted and a belief is born.
