(USED) Very good condition
"This seminal novel-- a rediscovered classic-- comes from seventeenth-century China. In the three hundred years since its initial publication, Li Yu's The Carnal Prayer Mat has been widely read in China, where it is recognized as a hallmark of erotic literature. but since the birth of the People's Republic in 1949 the novel has been banned in its country of origin. Now for the first time The Carnal Prayer Mat receives its first unexpurgated English-language translation.'"
