    I found this book accidently while browsing the shelves at SOAS. Apparently it's part of a series and I've now added all the other stories to my wish list. Idema is great at presenting how these iconic Chinese stories have actually changed quite a bit over time and how there are different regional variations. He translates several different versions from different time periods from the early 17th to the late 19th century.

    I read this a month ago but really enjoyed it and will definitely read it again. It's interesting and insightful and the story of White Snake remains one of my favourites.
