The Subtle Body

…A dyspeptic British doctor on an all-noodle diet,

…a Chinese cookbook author looking for an international publisher,

…a British wife discovering multiple marriages, and

…a Chinese translator at the heart of it all.

—It’s an 18th century love rectangle, where everyone must confront a foreign interpretation of the human heart
