Avenue of Eternal Peace

Nicholas Jose

Avenue of Eternal Peace
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.

Praise for Avenue Of Eternal Peace:
'A brilliant novelistic portrait of China on the brink of monumental change.' - Los Angeles Times

'An authentic, gripping, disturbing tale of Beijing leading up to the Tiananmen Square massacre.' - Advertiser
