In 1965, UQP first published Ian Fairweather's The Drunken Buddha. His iconic translation of an ancient Chinese novel, illustrated with his paintings, was praised by scholars and readers alike. Fairweather was fascintated by Chinese calligraphy and possessed great knowledge of popular Buddhism; his translation retains the spirit of both the original work and popular Chinese literature in general. This new edition celebrates Fairweather's creative legacy; and the classic tale of Buddhist monk Chi-Tien, often drunk and irreverent but nonetheless considered a saint, continues to resonate.
