Summary "Scholarly and scatological, this cornucopia of fun and wisdom is a breathtaking picture of speech, thought and images from the worldѫs 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. Itѫs about what is lost in translation and what can be gained by it."--Publisher's website.
