Summary
"Explores the tale literature of eighth- and ninth-century China to show how the written tales we have today grew out of a fluid culture of hearsay that circulated within elite society. The author focuses on two main types of tales, those based in gossip about recognizable public figures and those developed out of lore concerning the occult"--Provided by the publisher
