Balzac and the Little Chinese Seamstress

My learner  loved the book Balzac and the Little Chinese Seamstress by Dai Sijie, suggested by the leader of the intermediate to advanced discussion group.  The following site includes useful information for discussion for a tutor.

A film was made based on the novel.  Another article includes discussion questions and differences between a film and a book which open up discussion points for things kept and not kept and why.

Re the film

Particularly meaningful for a Chinese learner, but appropriate for any
