Love and Other Consolation Prizes Hardback

Hardback

Description

1909, Seattle. At the World's Fair a half-Chinese boy called Ernest Young is raffled off as a prize.

He ends up working in a brothel in Seattle's famed Red Light District and falls in love with Maisie, the daughter of a flamboyant madam, and Fahn, a karayuki-san, a Japanese maid sold into servitude. On the eve of the new World's Fair in 1962, Ernest looks back on the past, the memories he made with his beloved wife while his daughter, a reporter, begins to unravel their tragic past.
