From Publishers Weekly:

"Marked by lush, erotic imagery and a subtle, complex handling of motifs, this slim and powerful first novel from $ Australia is a carefully controlled psychological study set in the turbulent times of Chiang Kai-shek's China," said PW of the portrait of a lusty Scottish ana lyst and one of his patients.

Book Description Text Publishing Co, Australia, 2014. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. He would relive for a long time everything she said to him in the room at the mission. He would recall the way her voice had grown thicker and thicker, and how her head had begun to hang to one side from the exhaustion of her telling, and how he made himself face the photograph of the dead child. Shanghai, 1927- hot, teeming, mysterious. Kenneth Ayres, a disciple of Freud, is an anonymous expatriate treating the lonely wives and daughters of British colonials. When Julia Paradise, the wife of an Australian missionary, is sent to him for psychoanalysis, he is seduced into her world, a kaleidoscope of incestuous eroticism and grotesque hallucinations. But Ayres hides an even darker secret. Bookseller Inventory # AAC9781922147127
