About the Book :

A wonderful and compellingly visual novel, whose world is as completely realised as anything by Robert Graves, Amitav Ghosh or Barry Unsworth William Dalrymple

Lisbon, 1898: Antonio Maria, surgeon and notorious playboy, returns home after a long absence to learn that his beloved father has syphilis, the scourge of both rich and poor. Determined to find a cure, Antonio sets sail for Peking, to study under the renowned Dr Xu. But the Chinese master does not intend to give away his knowledge easily, insisting that Antonio spend four full seasons in the Summer Palace. While learning the Chinese secrets of the human body, Antonio falls in love with Xus assistant, the elusive Fumi. The threat of the Boxer rebellion hangs over Peking, and Antonio and Fumi must decide whether to flee together or remain in China, testing the limits of their love and faith in the human power to cure the dreaded pox.

the opening pages about Pourtgal in novel are excellent. i can't imagine how a writer turns a disease into cultural, journey and medical science fiction. And it explores the history of china in a fantastic way.
