K: The Art of Love

K - Hong Ying The cover claims that this is "The Chinese Lady Chatterley's Lover", based on a true story, an "Erotic" tale of forbidden love.

It's about as erotic as a wet tea towel.

The story of Julian Bell (nephew of Virgina Woolf) and Lin Cheng, the wife of the dean of the university he goes to teach at in China.

Bell comes over as very selfish, who thinks that women are just there to give him pleasure. She comes over as completely insecure and becomes suicidal when he cools their relationship. They both loved each other, but he didn't want to be tied down and forced into making a decision about their relationship.

The most interesting part of the story for me concerned Julians trip to try and track down the Red Army and ended up witnessing a mass execution.
