Romantic love was born alongside the novel, and books have been shaping how we experience and think about our most intimate stories ever since. But what do novels give us when our own lives diverge from the usual narrative paths? This book is a heady mix of memoir, criticism and storytelling that draws on novels ranging from 'Pride and Prejudice' to 'Price of Salt', 'Anna Karenina' to 'Conversations with Friends', to illuminate the ways love and novels work, and show how some types of love, which don't race to a narrative end-point, might be the most important of all.
