Six Records of a Floating Life is an extraordinarily frank autobiography that is totally unprecedented and un paralleled in the history of Chinese literature. It describes the life of the author and his beloved wife in extremely revealing detail. The intimacy and joy shared by the couple are as unusual by normal standards of Chinese married life as it the author's daringness in revealing them to others.
First published in 1809, Shen Fu's famous recounting of his life during the Ching dynasty in China gives a candid look at the social customs and cultural traditions of that era. It is also a tender love story.
