History and legend brilliantly combine in this bawdy "autobiographical" account of the life of famed rabble-rousing Chinese versemaker Li Po. A Floating Life is a magnificent portrayal of a critical time in China's history and the life of a literary legend. Nearly 1,300 years after the fact, Simon Elegant's scrupulously researched novel captures the essence of the eccentric bard of spontaneous verse in full splendor and bravado.
