312 pp, large 8vo (9 1/4" H). "History and legend brilliantly combine in Simon Elegant's bawdy 'autobiographical' account of China's famed rabble-rousing versemaker Li Po. (A) magnificent portrayal of a critical time in China's history and the life of a literary legend. Nearly thirteen hundred years after the fact, Simon Elegant's scrupulously researched novel captures the essence of the eccentric bard of spontaneous verse in fullest splendor and bravado."
