Shifu, You'll Do Anything for a Laugh, Paperback Book

Shifu, You'll Do Anything for a Laugh Paperback


Shifu, You'll Do Anything for a Laugh is a collection of eight compelling short stories written over the past twenty years: surrealistic political fables, ghost stories, tales of failed and perverse love, and stories about the destructive effects of superstition and ignorance.

These stories capture the current concerns of the Chinese: lack of income, famine, and the devastating effects of the one-child policy.

One particular get-rich-quick scheme involves an unemployed man who decides to convert an abandoned bus into a venue for private trysts which will enable him to charge lovers by the hour.
