"I loved this book and can't stop talking about it. . . . Transcendent." —Carolyn See, The Washington Post 

In the tradition of Balzac and the Little Chinese Seamstress, Wang Gang's English is a captivating coming-of-age novel about the power of language to launch a journey of self-discovery. When a new teacher comes to school—a tall, elegantly dressed man from Shanghai carrying an English dictionary under his arm—twelve-year-old Love Liu turns away from Chairman Mao's little red book and toward the teacher's big blue book for answers to his most pressing questions about love and life. But as a whole new world begins to open up for him, Love Liu must face a test more challenging than any he'll take in the classroom.


From the Trade Paperback edition.
