Reviews

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

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 * He's completely on the money with the minutiae of marital life and every note rings uncomfortably true. The story is told with great wit and affection... de Botton knows his stuff and the book builds into a truly wonderful and positive analysis of a successful lifelong partnership. It should be compulsory reading for anyone contemplating tying the knot. * Daily Mail * Engaging, meticulous, acutely perceptive... There's a refreshing honesty in what De Botton has to say * Guardian * One passage was so spot-on that I read it aloud to my husband... De Botton appreciates, as few writers do, the miracle and subtlety of the so-called ordinary * The Times * Well-observed and imbued with a tenderness that feels authentic and uncynical... It may even save some marriages. * Evening Standard * [A] worldly wise romance * Mail on Sunday * A complete delight -- Amy Bloom, author of 'Lucky us'
