There are view books I've read that left me so involved with the spirit of the writer as I climbed with the author into both the mountain, its mist, and the author. I felt enveloped, and confused with what was the mountain and what was his quest, as we began to resolve it; an unearthly awareness came to him as it was simultaneously revealed to the reader. Beautifully written, yet from a culture I have only begun to learn from. Completely absorbing.

Could be an interesting book, I had trouble because it is a translation, which tend not to grab me quickly. Sounds like a Chinese Jack Kerouac.

first you might read this one if you are searching PBS for an addition to a author charllenge (those X authors are hard to come by). Upon reading it you come to realize it is like no other novel you will ever read.
