Click Here to Purchase:  Below the Line in Beijing by Richard Seldin from IPBooks.net.

In this unique exploration of love, psychoanalysis and male sexuality, the protagonist must struggle with a deteriorating marriage, the loss of his ability to speak English, a philandering alter ego and incessant fantasies about hooking-up with young women. All of these disorienting conflicts are played out at the 2008 Beijing Olympics. On the protagonist’s last day in Beijing, his alter ego persuades him to visit a high-end brothel where he is overcome with desire for a beautiful young prostitute. He must then choose between a life of carnal pleasure and love for his wife.
