This is book number 44 in the Asian Thought and Culture series.


Nuogao ji (Records of Nuogao) is the title of five juan of the ninth-century miscellany entitled Youyang zazu, by Duan Chengshi (c. 800-863). Nuogao ji is made up of anecdotes and notices that focus on the strange or supernatural. Simultaneously reminiscent of earlier zhiguai works and characteristic of Tang xiaoshuo writing, this book is an important text for the study of both change and continuity in Chinese informal narratives. This is the first complete English translation of Nuogao ji.
