Product description

Review

"Alicia Drake's beautifully written tale of an adolescent French boy adrift between divorced, narcissistic parents feels like the enfant naturel of Henry James's What Maisie Knew and Deborah Levy's Swimming Home. Her depiction of contemporary well-heeled Parisian life is so spot on, you might be in the sixth arrondissement watching kids spill out of school, lighting their cigarettes and lining up to buy pain au chocolat at the corner boulangerie. I couldn't put it down."--Anne Korkeakivi, author of Shining Sea

"A timely look at the carnage caused by parental narcissism. Funny, waspish, astute, l Love You Too Much is a heart breaking tale from the tubby sidelines of Parisian perfection."--Denise Mina, author of The Long Drop

"I Love You Too Much is an atmospheric deep dive into longing, betrayal, and the shattered illusions of youth. Alicia Drake's Paris is haunting, and her writing soars."
--Charlotte Rogan, author of Now and Again

"Not often do you come across a protagonist who you want to hug and shield from the world. Drake creates a character who is sure to bring out the maternal instinct in every reader."--Janice MacLeod, author of the New York Times bestseller Paris Letters

"In her compelling fiction debut, Drake, a formerly longtime Paris resident... crafts Paul's hometown with a true insider's care, and she believably narrates as a boy resisting the confining forces of his self-involved parents' narrow paths and stingily shared love for him."--Booklist

'Memorable, heartfelt...poignant and uplifting'--Publisher's Weekly

"An astute and poignant portrait of adolescence."--People

"a dark coming-of-age story that will break your heart - and not let you forget it."--Hello Giggles

About the Author

Brought up in Liverpool, Alicia Drake was educated at Cambridge University. She went to Paris for six months and stayed for eighteen years. There she worked as a writer and fashion journalist and had five children. She is the author of The Beautiful Fall, a book of narrative nonfiction about Paris fashion and creativity in the 1970s. She returned to the UK recently and now lives in the countryside with her husband and children. I Love You Too Much is her first novel.
