In this dazzlingly original first novel, Alain de Botton tells of a young man smitten by a woman on a Paris-London flight. On Love plots the course of their affair from the initial delirium of infatuation to the depths of suicidal despair, as the beloved, inexplicably, begins to drift away.

Brilliant novel. A kind of a microscopic analysis of a relationship, from beginning to end, with the narrator referring to psychology, philosophy and politics with humour and grace.
