MY FAVOURITE WIFE by Tony Parsons is out in hardcover at 27 euros.

This is a sizzling Shanghai tale of sex, romantic struggles and second wives.

Hot shot young lawyer Bill Holden and his wife Becca move with their four-year-old daughter to Shanghai.

Bill’s law firm houses the Holden family in Paradise Mansions – a luxury apartment block in Shanghai’s Gubei New Area, where in a curious revival of the concubine system newly rich Chinese men install their second wives.

After Becca witnesses a tragedy that awakens her to the reality of life beyond the bright lights and glitzy surface of the city, she decides to return temporarily to London with Holly – and Bill and neighbour, JinJin, are thrown together.

This is a book about contemporary marriages – the struggles and the difficulties of living in a foreign country, the shared joys and aspirations.

Above all it is a book about where sex, romance and obsession ends and where true love begins.
