Bramah, Ernest: The Mirror of Kong Ho, v.1, 3 Nov 2007.
Ernest Bramah: ‘The Mirror of Kong Ho,’ (1905)
Tonight I am posting two books which use reverse anthropology as a device. The plot summary at the beginning of this work says:
‘A lively and amusing collection of letters on western living written by Kong Ho, a Chinese gentleman. These addressed to his homeland, refer to the Westerners in London as barbarians and many of the aids to life in our society give Kong Ho endless food for thought. These are things such as the motor car and the piano; unknown in China at this time.’
I have already posted two of Bramah’s ‘Kai Lung’ stories and HarryT has given us an omnibus of Bramah’s ‘Max Carrados’ detective stories.
