K: the Art of Love

by Hong Ying - £10.99  Penguin Books Ltd (2011)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780241950692 | ISBN 10: 0241950694

China, 1930s. Julian Bell, son of the Bloomsbury set's Vanessa, is newly arrived in Peking. In search of fresh experiences, he encounters the beautiful, intelligent and deeply erotic Lin Cheng. Though Lin is wife to a university professor, their passionate assignations blossom into an affair.
 
Schooled in the ancient Taoist arts of love, Lin instructs Julian in the ways of the East. But if society won't tolerate this union between Occidental and Oriental can their love possibly survive?
 
Based on a true story this is a tragic tale of romance, betrayal and sexual desire set against a backdrop of conflict and war.
