Alain De Botton: The Course Of Love says
Long popular and acclaimed for his insightful works of philosophy and cultural criticism, Alain de Botton makes this welcome return for the publicaiton of his second novel, The Course of Love (Simon & Schuater). It has been many years, and many other books since On Love; this bears out the anticipation, an engaging romance (on several levels) set in Edinburgh.

Co-presented with The Washington Center for the Book.

“The course of true love may not run smooth, but the storytelling certainly does in this wise, humane and irresistibly readable history of an appealingly nuanced relationship. De Botton deftly moves us through time, weaving in philosophical interludes that showcase his essayistic gifts, so that before we know it we have lived a whole life with these two, and they are just getting started. De Botton directs his ferocious intelligence at the most complex puzzle of all, and it seems that no intellectual or emotional problem surpasses his ability to solve it.” —Matthew Thomas

“The Course of Love is a complete delight. Not surprisingly, I feel that Alain de Botton not only wrote it for me, but also that we must have been conversing on these subjects happily and deeply, privately or in my dreams.” —Amy Bloom
