This book is a group portrait of Jin Yong, the best Chinese novelist of the wuxia (martial arts and chivalry) genre, and of his teacher-friends, many of them renowed scholars of China. This biography chronicles these dear teacher-friends that Jin Yong has made during his entire life, i.e., from an obscure student in the countryside to a well-established wuxia wirter, and explores the possible influnce they have produced on the most popular wuxia writer.
