Richly textured, Love Among the Orientals tells the intriguing story of Classic Design, an oriental carpet boutique on Boylxon Street in the heart of Boston's Back Bay district. The men and women who work at the shop have all fallen under the spell of the carpets' bold and colorful patterns, and for some, the love affair with each Bakhtiari and Kazak turns to unihibited sexual obession. Amid this climate of sexual discovery is another scandal: someone has been stealing these lush carpets from the homes of Classic Design's clients. Deisre and greed threaten to put the store out of business, and destroy the lives of the owner and employees. With its distinctive setting, Love Among the Orientals is a winning debut in the tradition of Grand Hotel--full of wit, suspense, humor, and a cast of appealing characters.
