About the Author:

Cao Xueqin (?1715-63) was born into a family which for three generations held the office of Commissioner of Imperial Textiles in Nanking, a family so wealthy they were able to entertain the Emperor four times. However, calamity overtook them and their property was consfiscated. Cao Xueqin was living in poverty when he wrote his famous novel The Story of the Stone.

From the Back Cover:

Divided into five volumes, of which The Dreamer Wakes is the fifth, it charts the glory and decline of the illustrious Jia family (a story which closely accords with the fortunes of Cao Xuequin's own family).

Book Description Penguin Books Ltd, United Kingdom, 1986. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 5th Revised edition. 194 x 130 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. The Story of the Stone (c. 1760), also known as The Dream of the Red Chamber, is one of the greatest novels of Chinese literature.
