Balzac and the little Chinese seamstress by Sijie Dai( Book )

At the height of Mao's infamous Cultural Revolution, two boys are among hundreds of thousands exiled to the countryside for "re-education." The narrator and his best friend, Luo, guilty of being the sons of doctors, find themselves in a remote village where, among the peasants of Phoenix mountain, they are made to cart buckets of excrement up and down precipitous winding paths. Their meager distractions include a violin--as well as, before long, the beautiful daughter of the local tailor. But it is when the two discover a hidden stash of Western classics in Chinese translation that their re-education takes its most surprising turn. While ingeniously concealing their forbidden treasure, the boys find transit to worlds they had thought lost forever. And after listening to their dangerously seductive retellings of Balzac, even the Little Seamstress will be forever transformed

Une jeune fille, encore lycéenne, est convaincue de la culpabilité de son père, gardien d'un réservoir d'eau, dans la disparition de sa mère. Une ancienne forgeronne ranime son fourneau pour fabriquer une chaîne de fer qui attachera son fils à un arbre. Ces trois vies parallèles se déroulent simultanément, dans un même lieu: l'étrangement nommée île de la Noblesse. Un décor gigantesque, digne d'un film de science-fiction, où affluent les déchets et matériels électriques de tout un pays, la Chine moderne, l'atelier du monde. Ces trois histoires, aux images brutales et fulgurantes, s'imposent par leur force poétique et leur paradoxale liberté"--Page 4 of cover

Un jour ..., en butin d'une bataille ... la Quinte souveraine reçoit quatre trophées: un couple de rhinocéros, un éléphant, et 'une créature muette, noire de la tête aux pieds à l'exception du blanc des yeux, une espèce jamais repérée.' Présage funeste? Défi céleste? Ce butin hors normes déclenche mille péripéties rocambolesques, plaçant l'Empire et son plus haut représentant sous l'imminence de la catastrophe. ...
