A Lover's Discourse

by Xiaolu Guo - £8.99  Vintage Publishing (2021)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781529112481 | ISBN 10: 1529112486

A Chinese woman comes to post-Brexit London to start over - just as the Brexit campaign reaches a fever pitch. Isolated and lonely in a Britain increasingly hostile to foreigners, she meets a landscape architect and the two begin to build their future together.
 
Playing with language and the cultural differences that our narrator encounters as she settles into her new life, the lovers must navigate their differences and their romance, whether on their unmoored houseboat or in a cramped apartment in east London.
 
Suffused with a wonderful sense of humour, this intimate novel asks what it means to make a home and a family in a new land.
