The Tribulations of a Chinaman in China By Jules Verne
Paperback: $14.99

This delightful story is one of Verne's foreign tales. In all likelihood he never set foot anywhere near the places he writes about, but his background research seems impeccable. Unlike some others,... More > this is not a travel piece as much as it is the story of a moderately rich Chinese man, in China, arranging his own death so that he can give the love of his life as well as a philosopher some money. His hope it will make them happy. Along the way he sets out of some travels where he inevitably finds that there might just be a good reason to live after all. And then he and his companions find themselves floating in the middle of the sea, with a hungry shark coming at them. There is little hope for them… Please note that Verne tries to not be insensitive about another culture, but somewhere in the translations a bit of that shows through. Also, spellings of far-away places back in the 1800s was a little odd. Sound some of them out and you will have no troubles.< Less

Kin-Fo, a well to do Chinese man living in Shang-Hai, is accused by his good friend Wang of not having had any discomforts in his life that would make him appreciate true happiness. When Kin-Fo, receives news that his fortune is lost, he arranges for an insurance policy to be taken out on his life that would cover his death, even by suicide; which he is planning on committing. When Kin-Fo can’t bring himself to end his own life, he contracts Wang to do it, by even giving him a letter that will exonerate him of the deed.< Less
