沈復: 浮生六記 (Traditional Chinese)

This is not a novel. The book is a collection of some description about the life of the author in different stages.
The book was never published when the author was alive (He was born 250 years ago). It was only transferred in manuscript by friends of the author. Many years later, the book was found in used-book market with only 4 chapters left (According to the book title, there should be 6 chapters). The people who found the remainder was amazed by its beautiful language and decided to make it public (there was no copyright regulation then).
The book was famous because the author's beautiful description and sincere emotion. One of the chapters is adopted in Taiwan official high school textbook. So, imagine its popularity.
