Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Part historical epic, part social satire, and part spiritual allegory, the folk novel Journey to the West, which came to be known as Monkey, is probably the most popular book in all of East Asia. David Kherdian's retelling brings this classic of Chinese literature to life for the first time in a way that is true to the scope and depth of the original.
