AbstractHistoryArchive Description

A completely amoral doctor, Kenneth Ayres, psychoanalyses Queenslander Julia Paradise, a morphine addict and missionary's wife in the Shanghai British Colony. As Julia's subconscious reveals its ambiguities, Ayres is trapped by sexual symbols and forces, becoming a victim of his own fallacies and his patient's vengeance. (Source: LibrariesAustralia)
