Lloyd Lofthouse Critics' Pick Staff Pick

When: Tue., Sept. 2, 4 p.m. 2008
Price: free

Belfast-bred Robert Hart sailed to China in 1854 to work for the customs service. But falling in love with Ayaou, a beautiful young concubine, changed his life forever. Based on the true story of Hart and Ayaou, EastBay author Lloyd Lofthouse's novel My Splendid Concubine evokes a faraway time and place in which the quaint phrase "forbidden love" still wielded devastatingly genuine power. Lofthouse reads from the novel at Orinda Books (276 Village Sq., Orinda) on September 2. 4 p.m.
