Balzac and the Little Chinese Seamstress, by Dai Sijie, 184 pages
This short work of fiction is great for book clubs and would work for a Banned Book Week discussion. In 1970s China, the narrator and his friend are sent to the countryside to be "re-educated," and wiped clean of their bourgeois sensibilities. But there they find a treasure trove of banned, Western fiction that changes their lives and that of the young seamstress they try to "civilize" using the books. It's a short book, so there's not a whole lot more to say about it- but after reading it, there is a lot of substance for discussion with a book group.
