I read the first book (Bridge of Birds) in Barry Hughart’s The Chronicles of Master Li and Number Ten Ox trilogy… wow, over twenty years ago? Anyway, it was a loaner, I never got a copy, but I still fondly remember Master Li, and the slight flaw in his character. So today I find out that there were two more books, and the whole thing is now heading to my Kindle, and I suggest that you follow suit.
Twenty years. Maybe twenty-five. Wow.
