Having enchanted readers on two continents with "Balzac and the Little Chinese Seamstress, "Dai Sijie now produces a rapturous and uproarious collision of East and West, a novel about the dream of love and the love of dreams. Fresh from 11 years in Paris studying Freud, bookish Mr. Muo returns to China to spread the gospel of psychoanalysis. His secret purpose is to free his college sweetheart from prison. To do so he has to get on the good side of the bloodthirsty Judge Di, and to accomplish "that" he must provide the judge with a virgin maiden. This may prove difficult in a China that has embraced western sexual mores along with capitalism-especially since Muo, while indisputably a romantic, is no ladies' man. Tender, laugh-out-loud funny, and unexpectedly wise, "Mr. Muo's Travelling Couch "introduces a hero as endearingly inept as Inspector Clouseau and as valiant as Don Quixote.
