1 Sijie, Dai Balzac and the Little Chinese Seamstress
London Chatto & Windus 2001 0701169826 / 9780701169824 First Edition, First Printing Hard Cover 
As New in an As New dustjacket. Crimson boards. The spine is stamped in silver. Crimson endpapers. 172pp. A flawless copy: clean, tight, square, and bright. All tips are sharp. Yet to be read. The dustjacket, glossy in a mylar sleeve, has the original price of 12.99 (U.K.) on the front flap. ".In 1971 Mao's campaign against the intellectuals is at its height. Our narrator and his best friend, Luo, distinctly unintellectual but guilty of being the sons of doctors, have been sent to a remote mountain village to be 're-educated'.Their true 're-education' starts when they discover a comrade's hidden stash of classics of great nineteenth-century Western literature -- Balzac, Dickens, Dumas, Tolstoy and others, in Chinese translation. They need all their ingenuity to get their hands on the forbidden books, but when they do their lives are turned upside down. And not only their lives: after listening to their dangerously seductive retellings of Balzac, the Little Chinese Seamstress will never be the same again." Purchase with confidence: all books, gradings, and descriptions are rendered the care of a genuine bibliophile. Satisfaction guaranteed or all costs you've incurred will be promptly refunded.
