Essays In Love

Review
The book's success has much to do with its beautifully modelled sentences, its wry humour and its unwavering deadpan respect for its reader's intelligence . . . full of keen observation and flashes of genuine lyricism, acuity and depth. (Francine Prose)

Witty, funny, sophisticated, neatly tied up, and full of wise and illuminating insights. (P. J. Kavanagh Spectator)

De Botton is a national treasure. (Susan Hill)

I doubt if de Botton has written a dull sentence in his life. (Jan Morris New Statesman)

Single-handedly, de Botton has taken philosophy back to its simplest and most important purpose: helping us to live our lives (Independent)

It's a familiar tale but there is nothing predictable about De Botton's explanation of how love enthrals us all. This is no light romance but a sort of "When Harry Met Sally Meets Roland Barthes". . . A novel of wit and insight; whatever the state of your love life, it will make entertaining and sometimes painful, sometimes profitable reading (Time Out)

From the Back Cover

Perhaps it is true that we do not really exist until there is someone there to see us existing, we cannot properly speak until there is someone who can understand what we are saying, in essence, we are not wholly alive until we are loved.


A man and a woman meet over casual conversation on a flight from Paris to London, and so begins a love story - from first kiss to first argument, elation to heartbreak, and everything in between. Each stage of the relationship is illuminated with startling clarity, as de Botton explores emotions often felt but rarely understood.

With the verve of a novelist and the insight of a philosopher, Alain de Botton uncovers the mysteries of the human heart. Essays In Love is an iconic book - one that should be read by anyone who has ever fallen in love.
