About the Author

Catherine Yeh is research associate at the Institute of Chinese Studies, University of Heidelberg, Germany.


"Yeh depicts a unique cultural phenomenon in late Qing Shanghai and has discerned its implied paradoxes. This is an extremely rich and fascinating book; it will change the way we think of Chinese literati and courtesan culture under the impact of modernity." David D.W. Wang, Harvard University
