Press Release: The Tragic Marriages of Doctor Geneva Song

Jun 2, 2014 – Libros Libertad

2 June 2014

Libros Libertad announced, today, the publication of The Tragic Marriages of Doctor Geneva Song, a novel by Robert N. Friedland.

In this dark sequel to, The Second Wedding of Doctor Geneva Song, the protagonists work out their fates within the tense frame of character and tradition.

Doctor Geneva Song's Chinese wedding ceremony is traditional, but she marries outside of her race and culture. This ancient ritual sets in motion a fateful journey from the light to the dark for Geneva, her Spirit Sister, and the men who love them.

"The Tragic Marriages of Doctor Geneva Song is like a fine red wine: complex, surprising, satisfying, leaving you wanting for more. Friedland's prose is quietly poetic and his narrative voice subtle and hypnotic." – Reed Farrel Coleman, Shamus Award-winning author.

Robert N. Friedland's writing has been published in Canada and internationally in the US, England, and Japan. This is his third book. When not writing, Friedland practices human rights law in Vancouver, BC. He is a widely published commentator on the international, Canadian, and British Columbian political scene.

Libros Libertad previously published Friedland's, The Second Wedding of Doctor Geneva Song, and, Faded Love, a collection of short stories.
