About this title

Synopsis:

Young Herve Joncour has to leave his doting wife, Helene, and his comfortable home in the small town of Lavilledieu, France and travel across Siberia through to Japan, to obtain uncontaminated silkworm eggs for breeding. He meets a local baron's concubine and falls in love.

From the Inside Flap:

This startling, sensual, hypnotically compelling novel tells a story of adventure, sexual enthrallment, and a love so powerful that it unhinges a man's life. In 1861 French silkworm merchant Hervé Joncour is compelled to travel to Japan, where, in the court of an enigmatic nobleman, he meets a woman. They do not touch; they do not even speak. And he cannot read the note she sends him until he has returned to his country. But in the moment he does, Joncour is possessed. The same spell will envelop anyone who reads Silk, a work that has the compression of a fable, the evocative detail of the greatest historical fiction, and the devastating erotic force of a dream.
