Product description

Review

Publisher's description. Rabih and Kirsten meet, fall in love, get married. Think this is the end of the story? It's only the beginning. With his trademark warmth and wit, Alain de Botton explores modern relationships with a novel that asks what it truly means to love and to be loved. (Penguin)

Anyone who is, has been, or would ever like to be, in a satisfying, successful relationship, would do well to read de Botton. A brave couple might even read it together (Irish Independent)

Alain de Botton's gift is to prompt us to think about how we live (Jeanette Winterson)

Curious, humorous and dazzling... It contains more human interest than most fiction (John Updike on 'How Proust Can Change Your Life')

His prose is lovely: clear, gently persuasive, light of touch (Observer on Religion for Atheists)

Alain de Botton likes to take big, complex subjects and write about them with thoughtful and deceptive innocence

(Observer on The Architecture of Happiness)

Engaging, sympathetic, meticulous, acutely perceptive...There's a refreshing honesty in what De Botton has to say (The Guardian)

Well-observed and imbued with a tenderness that feels authentic and uncynical. It may even save some marriages (Evening Standard)

Thought-provoking... [a] worldly wise romance (Mail on Sunday)

Book Description

"Playful, wise and profoundly moving,aThe Course of Loveais a delightful return to the novel by Alain de Botton, twenty years after his debutaEssays in Love. "
