Gretel (gretelrot) | 75 comments I need a little help with sorting out this problem. I'm still learning on how to correctly tackle certain issues so I'd love to have some help here.

The Book "Aching for Beauty" (https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/7...) by Wang Ping is also found under the name of "Ping Wang", which would be the Western name orientation. The problem is, "Ping Wang" (https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...) is an entirely different author profle and it has another book by Wang Ping (Ten Thousand Waves: Poems; https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2...).
Additionally, it seems that the "Ping Wang" profile has numerous books on bio-medicine and other scientific fields. I guess different authors with a similar sounding name are grouped as the same "Ping Wang" incorrectly.

Wang Ping's books need to be merged with the others in the "Ping Wang" profile.
Also, maybe somebody knows how to handle the author confusion that is going on.

Thank you for your help!
