In this first of a planned five-volume set, David Roy provides a complete and annotated translation of the famous Chin P'ing Mei, an anonymous sixteenth-century Chinese novel that focuses on the domestic life of Hsi-men Ch'ing, a corrupt, upwardly mobile merchant in a provincial town, who maintains a harem of six wives and concubines. This work, known primarily for its erotic realism, is also a landmark in the development of the narrative art form--not only from a specifically Chinese perspective but in a world-historical context.

According to Gerard, a fifth great Chinese novel that was banned due to its eroticism. So that sounds intriguing. Although I should maybe get the first four under my belt first.

I read this book when I was nine and almost finished when my mother noticed it was missing from her shelf, so she thought it was too late to take it away from me ;~)
