About this product
- DescriptionTo track down Cookie, an elusive woman fleetingly glimpsed around his Beijing neighborhood, expat Isham Cook employs tips from Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, Simone Martini's painting of the Annunciation and Louis Althusser's Lenin and Philosophy. Meanwhile, Luna, a woman of flamboyant sexuality who invites her dinner guests into bed, assists Isham in the seduction of a third beauty of ambiguous Asiatic ethnicity, Adalat. But revelations from the philosopher of parody Jean Baudrillard begin to eat away at reality until Isham can longer clearly distinguish Luna from Adalat or his own Caucasian identity from the Chinese.
- Author BiographyOriginally from Chicago, author Isham Cook has been based in Beijing, China, since 1994.
