Dai Sijie

Balzac and the Little Chinese Seamstress

€ 14.95

An immediate international bestseller, it tells the story of two hapless city boys exiled to a remote mountain village for re-education during China?s infamous Cultural Revolution. There the two friends meet the daughter of the local tailor and discover a hidden stash of Western classics in Chinese translation. As they flirt with the seamstress and secretly devour these banned works, the two friends find transit from their grim surroundings to worlds they never imagined.

The author:
Born in China in 1954, Dai Sijie is a filmmaker who was himself ?re-educated? between 1971 and 1974.

He left China in 1984 for France, where he has lived and worked ever since. This, his first novel, was an overnight sensation when it appeared in France in 2000, becoming an immediate best-seller and winning five prizes. Rights to the novel have been sold in nineteen countries, and it is soon to be made into a film.
