Desire figures prominently as a subject in a number of recent studies of Chinese fiction… Yet Huang is the first to argue strongly for an intimate relationship between the new fascination with desire…during the Ming dynasty and the rise of vernacular fiction in late imperial China. After investigating types of desire…and the anxiety accompanying desire in the late Ming, Huang explores how particular views of desire are fashioned in various domestic and erotic novels.—Y. Wu, Choice
