About the Author

Christina Lupton is a literature professor at the University of Warwick.

Tina's writing has appeared in many publications including Avidly, n+1, Politics/Letters, the LARB and TLS.


'In this eloquent, captivating conversation between memoir and criticism, Christina Lupton also offers a mesmerizing love song to the experience of reading in its own right.' - David James, author of Discrepant Solace

'Tina Lupton's eloquent account of an unexpected real-life plot twist marries critical prowess and a gripping story, in an honest and fantastically insightful book.' - Laura Kipnis, author of 'Love in the Time of Contagion'

'Lupton's unsparing memoir forces us to re-examine the lives lived on our bookshelves and in our heads.' - Leah Price, author of 'What We Talk About When We Talk About Books'

'Such a rich exploration of love in all its forms (marital, adulterous; for children, friends). I love how Christina Lupton summons an iconic cast of our favourite fictional lovers ... even as her own desires carry her far beyond many of their teachings. A delicious combination of critical thought and passionate personal experience.' - Tanya Shadrick, author of 'The Cure for Sleep'

'A subversive, brilliant and beautifully written book about love, play and power in fiction and in the well-read life' - Sarah Moss
