Description - On the Smell of an Oily Rag by Ouyang Yu

Scholarly and scatological, this cornucopia of fun and wisdom is a breathtaking picture of speech, thought and images from the world's richest and oldest culture. On the Smell of an Oily Rag gives an insight like no other into how English-language and Chinese-language cultures collide, contrast and illuminate each other. It's about what is lost in translation and what can be gained by it. 'Very big, China.' - Noel Coward 'This is a book every structuralist should have on their shelves and read every day.' - Bruce Elder, Sydney Morning Herald
