Butterfly Lovers by Charles Foran

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.
