About the book:

A 10th-century Chinese mandarin travels to the 20th Century in his time machine, and writes letters home reporting on the strange land of ‘Zha-ma-ni’, in which he is surrounded by giants with big noses, and frightened by the iron carriages called ‘mo-tao-ka’. We gradually realize that he is in present-day Munich, and the hapless voyager’s encounters with modern life and love make delightful reading.
