I have little enough to say, and even less worth reading.

Balzac and the Little Chinese Seamstress: A Novel

Balzac and the Little Chinese Seamstress - Ina Rilke, Sijie Dai Engaging and quick little read, but its brevity may be its weakness for me. While I enjoyed the bright and clean writing style, there just wasn't enough depth to deliver on the (potential but not fully realized) themes. I do, however, feel compelled to read some Balzac now...or something else with the depth I prefer.
