Bill Porter, who goes by the name Red Pine for his translation work, has thoroughly entertained me with this book, while also opening up a world that I didn't know still existed. I've been to China dozens of times for business, and yet the modern hermit tradition is news to me. And connecting these hermits to the old ways and the old poets--Li Bai, Wang Wei, and others--makes this a fascinating read.
