More About the Author
Praise for ON LOVE: Imagine, of all impossible things, a young British Woody Allen with the benefit of a classical education and you have the nameless and exquisitely erudite narrator of On Love, a first novel by Alain de Botton, who seems to have been born to write. The Boston Globe The book s success has much to do with its beautifully modelled sentences, its wry humor and its unwavering deadpan respect for its reader s intelligence...full of keen observation and flashes of genuine lyricism, acuity and depth. The New Republic Witty, funny, sophisticated, neatly tied up, and full of wise and illuminating insights. The Spectator "A total delight" Josephine Hart The smart and funny On Love is just the strong cup of coffee needed to clear your head after a sticky sweet like On Love is romantic reality. The News & Observer An intricate decontruction of a love affair done in an intellectual, Seinfeldian style. . . . The commentary hits the nail on the head. Amy Sohn"
