From the Publisher

Butterfly Lovers is the story of David, divorced Montrealer at odds with everyone in his life, who has one chance to re-invent himself in post-Tiananmen Beijing. David’s story is a triumph of beautifully assured narrative, moving effortlessly between the vividly drawn locales of Montreal and Beijing and between past and present. A dozen different voices speak eloquently; the end result is an intelligent and moving exploration of our fragile, guarded identities and our tentative forays into discovering who we really are. Effortlessly and intricately textured, Butterfly Lovers is another superb read from a talented writer.
