About The Book
Susie Boyt’s sixth novel is the story of the first year of a marriage. Eve a nervous young actress from a powerful theatrical dynasty has found herself married to an international expert on anxiety called Jim. Could it work? Should it work? Must the show always go on? This is a highly-strung comedy about love, fame, grief, showbusiness and the depths of the gutter press. Its witty and sincere tone — familiar to fans of Susie’s newspaper column — will delight and unnerve in equal measure.
I so loved this novel, its originality leaps off the page and it made me laugh out loud. Seldom has an exploration of raw, profound grief been so entertaining (Deborah Moggach)
This is delightful and as tender as an accidental bruise. Boyt’s witty, zingy, ping-pong dialogue dances with Astaire-like flair — underneath it lies the darker depths of grief that threaten to draw all her characters down into the murky waters of loss. I found myself praying that the cork floats of hope were still firmly attached (Tamsin Greig)
Susie Boyt has a unique perspective on modern life and close relationships, she is one of the funniest and most individual writers working today (Linda Grant)
Love & Fame is so rich and insightful, and the writing is beautiful. Reading it will help you survive your own personality. There’s a special sort of merriment in the book and such a feast of particularity (Andrew O’Hagan)
A book that manages to be both clever AND cheerful! Who knows if you’re allowed to fall in love with characters in books any more (or again) but Eve is the most loveable heroine who has walked across the stage of English fiction for a long while. Delivered with wit and brilliance leavened with a sense of tragedy just off stage (Alain De Botton)
