To think of China at the present time is to think of violence - violence, revolution, and war. This charming novel points the contrast, the utter peace of that corner in Tartar City in Peking where lived the foreign journalist, the Maker of Heavenly Trousers.

The story is concerned with the love of the journalist for Kuniang, a little waif whom he befriended; with the doings of the Family of the Five Virtues; with the dramatic arrival of a beautiful Russian who strangely exchanged personalities with Kuniang in hypnotic dreams.

The background is authentic. Until quite recently Sgr. Varè held the post of Italian Minister to Peking and lived there for twelve years. He has long been known in Italy as author of many charming Chinese stories. This was his first full-length novel written in English. Since first publication it has been in constant demand.
