A Banquet for Hungry Ghosts

(2009)
A Collection of Deliciously Frightening Tales
A collection of stories by

 
According to Chinese tradition, those who die hungry or unjustly come back to haunt the living. Some are appeased with food, but not all ghosts are successfully mollified. In this chilling collection of stories, Ying Chang Compestine takes readers on an exhilarating journey through time and across different parts of China. Hungry ghosts have prevailed- from the building of the Great Wall in 200 B.C.E. to the modern day of iPods- and continue to torment those who wronged them.
At once a window into the history and culture of China and an ode to Chinese cuisine, this assortment of frightening tales- complete with historical notes and savory recipes- will both scare and satiate.
