This early work by Ernest Bramah Smith was originally published in 1911. „The Moon of Much Gladness Related by Kai Lung” is the fourth book in the Kai Lung series. The China which Kai Lung inhabits has numerous features of the fantasy Land of Fable, and many of the embedded tales are fantasy; all are told in an ornate manner which ironically, often hilariously, exaggerates the old Chinese tradition of understatement and politesse. Ernest Bramah was born was near Manchester in 1868. He was a poor student, and dropped out of the Manchester Grammar School when sixteen years old to go into the farming business. Bramah found commercial and critical success with his first novel, „The Wallet of Kai Lung”, but it was his later stories of detective Max Carrados that assured him lasting fame.
