A Ming Dynasty Story Collection
Slapping the Table in Amazement is the unabridged English translation of the famous story collection Pai’an jingqi by Ling Mengchu (1580–1644), originally published in 1628.
The first collection of its kind: forty-seven 18th-century British short stories, some of which have never before been anthologized, in an annotated and illustrated edition.
