Monumenta Nipponica Review by Peter Flueckiger

The March 2013 edition of Monumenta Nipponica includes a review of my book The Observable Mundane: Vernacular Chinese and the Emergence f a Literary Discourse on Popular Narrative in Edo Japan (Seoul National University Press) by Peter Flueckiger of Pomona College. I think the review is quite thoughtful and points out the  major problematic in my study of the status of Chinese vernacular narrative within the intellectual discourse of the Edo period.
