Cleverly concealing your everyday essential items into a compact clutch whilst making a bold statement in your choice of title. In an article featured in Interview Magazine, Le-Tan says of the books she chooses: "First of all, it has to have a nice cover, and it has to have a good title, as well as good content".  I guess you could go as far as saying that Le-Tan has given us the ability to rewrite the story to reflect our journey in the things that we carry...
