 In 1909, 12-year-old Ernest Young is shipped from China to the United States to be raffled off as a prize at the Seattle World’s Fair and ends up as the new houseboy at a high-class brothel. Fifty years later, Ernest struggles to help his ailing wife reconcile who she once was with who she wanted to be, while trying to keep family secrets hidden. Against a rich backdrop of post-Victorian vice, suffrage, and celebration, Love and Other Consolation Prizes is an enchanting tale about innocence and devotion in a world where everything, and everyone, is for sale. Registration required.
