Book Title: Balzac and the Little Chinese Seamstress

Author: Dai Sijie

Book Description:

How lucky I am to have been taught how to read, to have been constantly encouraged to explore any written text and to continue to have access to as many books as my heart desires. This poignant tale reminds me of the many luxuries for which we are so fortunate to have in our society, including public education, libraries, and the arts and sciences that nurture our capacity to dream, laugh and love without boundaries. If you are ever left wanting, this book will refresh your perspective.
