Description
A terrorist takeover at an embassy party brings together an unlikely assortment of hostages, among them Roxanne Coss, an American opera diva; Mr. Hosokawa, a Japanese CEO and her biggest fan; and Gen, his translator. Forced to reach out across the chasms of language, politics, and culture, the hostages, and their captors, must change their established beliefs, if they are to survive.

In a novel of daring and dramatic intensity, two couples, complete opposites, fall in love; sexual identities become confused; and a horrific imprisonment is transformed into an unexpected heaven on earth. Exploring passion in all its guises, even as the violence of its setting threatens to intrude, this striking novel surprises and enchants -- another magical work from one of today's most gifted writers.
