Also, since it is set in China during the late s and early 70s’ “re-education” that occurred under Chairman Mao, it has shown me a particular aspect of history that I had never before known.

Only a short story, not bad but not exciting either. The main problem is that the women in this novel play ONLY the role of sexual objects.

The boys end up meeting the daughter of a local tailor the Little Seamstressand along their way discover a suitcase full of banned books. Che ci racconta Dai?


This is probably one of the only books I’ve ever read where the characters are so valzac that you constantly keep in mind that they do not exist because nobody could possibly be so dull and unrealistic. Luo and his friend are barely eighteen lirbo they have to leave their home and move into a village in which they will be turned into respectable communists and workers. But I don’t want to see how it can have one person self-endorse himself for promiscuity all for selfish gain, pleasure, and purposes at the expense of others.

Balzac e la piccola sarta cinese. The book reads like an outline where the reader can see just where he or she would be interested in reading more, but unfortunately is denied that opportunity. I can’t figure out why it’s selling like hot cakes.

So Mao was, after all, right? The book was so delightful, I would love to see it depicted. It recounts the story of a pair of friends who become good friends with a local seamstress while spending time in a countryside village, where they have been sent for ‘re-education’ during the Cultural Revolution see Down to the Countryside Movement. Probably a little of all of these. When Luo and his friend discover a hidden box full of forbidden books in Chinese translation, their re-education takes a new turn.
