Read full description of the books Strange Tales from Liaozhai - Vol. 1:It seemed like the typical collection of ancient ghost stories at first. I really liked the introduction of this book. I had never thought of Pu's work as literature before. The introduction added a whole new way to read these stories and to reading other "true" stories about the supernatural.
That said, what really got me about this book is right around the 6th or 9th story out of nowhere there is a perversely charged story about a woman who teaches her dog to have sex with her. Up until this point, the stories were these tame little flash fictions about gremlins and ghosts. This was the only story like this in the collection but its what comes to mind now when I think of Strange Tales.
Read information about the authorPu Songling (simplified Chinese: 蒲松龄; traditional Chinese: 蒲松齡; pinyin: Pú Sōnglíng; Wade–Giles: P'u Sung-ling, June 5, 1640—February 25, 1715) was a Qing Dynasty Chinese writer, best known as the author of Strange Stories from a Chinese Studio.
Pu was born into a poor landlord-merchant family from Zichuan (淄川, now Zibo, Shandong). At the age of nineteen, he received the gongsheng degree in the civil service examination, but it was not until he was seventy-one that he received the xiucai degree.
He spent most of his life working as a private tutor, and collecting the stories that were later published in Strange Stories from a Chinese Studio. Some critics attribute the Vernacular Chinese novel Xingshi Yinyuan Zhuan to him.
