Beijing is a city of opportunity and danger when cancer specialist Wally Frith arrives there from Sydney. Chance encounters have life - changing consequences. As the doctor's journey spirals back into his own family story, memories and ghosts shadow the seductions of the present.
Avenue of Eternal Peace, a kaleidoscopic novel of healing and hope, was shortlisted for the Miles Franklin Literary Award and filmed as Children of the Dragon with Bob Peck and Lily Chen. This is a new, revised edition.
