Abstract

Reviews 75 were, all in all, about forty male servants among Wen's household staff," while the original text reads: "Those servants who worked in Wen's house are all about forty years old." However, this is unquestionably a brilliant choice by Joshua Fogel for introducing this writer to English readers, because the novel is a fine example of Chin's unique ability to blend history and fiction as well as to display his style of detective fiction. Though Chin Shunshin may not be well known in the English-speaking world, his vast output is widely appreciated not only by Japanese but also by Chinese readers, since a number of his works have been translated into Chinese. Hopefully more of his writing will appear in English and other languages, so that more people will become acquainted with this gifted Japanese writer.
