"A Chinese woman moves to London to start a new life. She knew she would be lonely, adrift in the city, but will her new relationship bring her closer to this land she has chosen, and will their love give her a home? A Lover's Discourse is a love story told through fragments of conversations between the two lovers. Playing with language and the cultural differences that her narrator encounters as she settles into post-Brexit Britain, Xiaolu Guo shows us how this couple navigate communication and their romance, whether on their unmoored houseboat or in a cramped and stifling apartment in east London. Suffused with a wonderful sense of humor, this intimate and tender novel asks what it means to make a home and a life in a new land"--
