A brilliant new novel about love and marriage in the modern world - from the author the bestselling novel Essays in Love
Modern love is never easy. Society is obsessed with stories of romance, but what comes after happily ever after?
This is a love story with a difference. From dating to marriage, from having kids to having affairs, it follows the progress of a single ordinary relationship- tender, messy, hilarious, painful, and entirely un-Romantic. It is a love story for the modern world, chronicling the daily intimacies, the blazing rows, the endless tiny gestures that make up a life shared between two people. Moving and deeply insightful, The Course of Love offers us a window into essential truths about the nature of love.
Alain de Botton was born in Zurich in 1969. He is the author bestselling non-fiction such as The Consolations of Philosophy and The Art of Travel, and novels including the bestselling Essays in Love. He lives in London and runs The School of Life. This is a modern love story. It is a story about learning to survive, endure and flourish in a relationship. Above all, it is a story full of tenderness and sympathy for the hard work of keeping love going, and full of hope that we can make it through.
