HASH(0xa483ef3c) out of 5 stars Best introduction to the best novel of the Eastern world Dec 10 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Dore Levy writes, "The Story of the Stone has the popular appeal of Margaret Mitchell's Gone With the Wind, The critical praise of James Joyce's Ulysses and is twice the length of both combined." Read The Story of the Stone and read Levy's masterful and entertaining survey.
