Description

"Whimsy and malice --yes --also mystery, a very female sensuality, and wit. An elegant and entertaining book." --Ursula K. Le Guin "The tales are beautifully written, elegant, passionate, funny, and moving. The entire collection is a delightful, magical bridge across cultures. I hope many readers find their way to it." --Patricia A. McKillip "Noted short story author Foster offers a dozen enchanting and sometimes chilling tales alive with elegantly sketched characters and sensibilities drawn from Asian folklore ...Readers who long for a break from European medieval fantasy will be charmed and entertained by Foster's tales." --Publishers Weekly Enchantment, peril and romance pervade the shadowy Far East, from the elegant throne room of the emperor's palace to the humble teahouse of a peasant village. In these dozen stories of adventure and magic from the Orient, a maiden encounters an oni demon in the forest, a bride discovers her mother-in-law is a fox woman, a samurai must appease his sister's angry ghost, strange luck is found in a jade locket, and dark and light are two sides of harmony. A striking debut collection from Eugie Foster.
