From the Back Cover
The popularity of the Chinese story-teller goes back to the market place of the T'ang dynasty, but the familiar figure came into his own in the twelfth and thirteenth centuries and his audience included not only the populace but men of leisure and the Emperor as well. This selection of six stories from Feng Meng-lung's collection includes representative types of the story-teller's traditional art.

I recommend this to those who would like to read tales from old China. These were created for the general public, so they are very entertaining and easy to read. I believe anyone would find these a pleasure to read.
