In 1861 French silkworm merchant Hervé Joncour travels to Japan. He strikes a business deal with a local baron there and is utterly bewitched by the man's concubine, a girl who does not have oriental eyes. An unlikely love blossoms between them, a love that is only strengthened over time. Subtle, tender and surprising, Silk is an entrancing tale of erotic possession and how the heart charts its own course. An international bestseller, Silk has been translated into twenty-seven languages and is the basis of an opera by André Previn and a major motion picture. Fall in love once again with this modern masterpiece in a beautiful new translation by Ann Goldstein. 'Deeply moving...A delicately crafted love story and an anatomy of desire.' Guardian
