Product description

Review

Beautifully written and, if you want to get a sense of this extraordinary woman, then it is a perfect introduction (Daily Mail)

Love and Ruin makes for captivating reading, and Gellhorn's a most worthy subject for McLain's skilful portraiture (Lucy Scholes Independent)

Fast paced and compelling, this is a novel that screams out to be filmed, the bantering insolent dialogue and the sparring partner protagonists reminiscent of Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall in the film of To Have And Have Not. A complex heartbreaker of a love story that makes for an enthralling read (Charlotte Heathcote Sunday Express)

Romance, infidelity, war - Paula McLain's powerhouse novel has it all (Glamour)

Engrossing . . . [Love and Ruin] spotlights a woman ahead of her time-a fearless reporter who covered the major conflicts of the twentieth century (Real Simple)

McLain brings forth the deepest, most ringing elements of both 'love and ruin', the two poles of Marty and Ernest's tempestuous relationship, a ferocious contest between two brilliant, wilful, and intrepid writers. McLain's fast-moving, richly insightful, heartwrenching, and sumptuously written tale pays exhilarating homage to its truly exceptional and significant inspiration (Booklist, starred review)

McLain's ability to base a work of fiction on real people is nothing short of superb. Readers may pick up Love and Ruin because of their obsession with Ernest Hemingway, but they'll fall in love with it because of Marty Gellhorn (BookPage)

Book Description

Paula McLain's new novel, Love & Ruin, recounts Martha Gellhorn's stormy marriage to Ernest Hemingway, and her painful decision to step out of his shadow and forge her own brilliant career as a war correspondent.
