Silk by Alessandro Baricco

In 1861 French silkworm merchant Hervé Joncour travels to Japan. He strikes a business deal with a local baron and is utterly bewitched by the man's concubine. An unlikely love blossoms between them that is strengthened over time. Subtle, tender and surprising, Silk is an entrancing tale of erotic possession and how the heart charts its own course.
