When we first meet Mr. Muo, he is traveling on a train to his home province in China, with $10,000 stuffed into his pants. He has been in France for the past 11 years as an apprentice in psychoanalysis. Always somewhat different, Muo was a university student when he was thunderstruck by two things: Freud's Interpretation of Dreams and a beautiful girl named Volcano of the Old Moon. Muo immediately recognized his vocation and earned a stipend from the French government. But he never forgot about Old Moon, even when she was imprisoned by the Chinese police as a political dissident. Now he has returned to gain her release through judiciary bribery. Unfortunately, her life is in the hands of the ruthless Judge Di, who wants, not money, but a virgin girl to sleep with. Humor derives from Muo's clumsy endeavors to lure a virgin, as he finds much has changed in modern China. A stranger in his homeland, Muo admirably continues trying to help Old Moon. But ultimately the pressing question becomes, Who will help Muo? (Booklist)

I really disliked this book! I found Mr Muo to be an annoying pervert who would get a smack on the mouth if he came near me on a train! Weidos on a train trying to fondle your ankles I can well do without! By the time I got to the stories about embalming women and washing machines that eat clothes, I was losing the will to live! I decided to move on to something else!

Will move this on in the Asian bookbox.
