Now there are three...In "Talking It Over", Gillian and Stuart were married until Oliver - witty, feckless Oliver - stole Gillian away. In "Love, etc", Jillian Barnes revisits the three of them, using the same intimate technique of allowing the characters to speak directly to the reader, to whisper their secrets, to argue for their version of the truth. Darker and deeper than its predecessor, "Love, etc" is a compelling exploration of contemporary love and its betrayals. 'The triange of deeply believable characters and the story of betrayal and revenge are so engrossing that you almost fail to notice the usual Barnesian fusillade of wit and brilliance' - John Carey, "Sunday Times". 'The real wonder of this book is its apparent simplicity, its apparent slowness, the exactness and delicacy of its observations, the absolute fitness of the form for the story. Of its kind - and i still dont dare to say what kind that might be - it's perfect' - Susannah Herbert, "Daily Telegraph". 'This wonderfully entertaining novel...A work as skilled and satisfying as this can be nothing other than affirming: Barnes' delicate balance between laughter and despair lifts his entertainment into art' - Erica Wagner, "The Times".Read Less
