Below the Line in Beijing

In this unique exploration of love, psychoanalysis, and male sexuality, the protagonist must struggle with a deteriorating marriage, the loss of his ability to speak English, a philandering doppelgänger and incessant fantasies of hooking-up with young women. All of these disorienting conflicts are played out at the 2008 Beijing Olympics. On his last day in Beijing, the protagonist must choose between a life of carnal pleasure and love for his wife. Read the blurbs.
