"Beneath the surface of a light-hearted comedy, Dinah Lee Küng addresses a wide range of serious questions - how much energy and passion is put into any lasting literary work, how literary friendships are never free from jealousy and what posterity and ideals really mean."

The London Student


One autumn, the serene marriage of a Swiss dermatologist to an English WHO leprosy expert is shattered by three intrusions on his Geneva practice: an American violinist marred by a birthmark; a tattooed Japanese gangster; and the doctor's old rival-in-love, now Manhattan's Botox King. Both dark satire and moving love story, this novel challenges the reader to look beyond the surface of events to see the characters weave the net of their own unmaking.
