Summary
In this seventeenth-century Chinese novel, Han Xiangzi, best known as one of the Eight Immortals, seeks and achieves immortality ad then devotes himself to converting his materialistic, politically ambitious Confucian uncle--Han Yu, a real historical figure--to Daoism. Written in vernacular prose interspersed with poems and songs, the novel takes its readers across China, to the heavens, and into the underworld. --From publisher's description
