At The Heart of the Universe, my latest book, published by Seven Stories Press, is a novel about Chinese adoption. The story of two mothers and a father in love with the same daughter, is a novel set deep in rural China against the backdrop of an ancient mountain monastery during the time of the one-child-per-family policy. Inspired by my experiences as parent of an adopted child, it describes the drama of adoption and the journey of loss and rebirth that can happen when a daughter brings together her adopted mother and father with her birth mother high on a mountaintop.
