Beschreibung

¿This presumably being the fact that he was in love with her. Or thought he was. Or said he was. Or said he thought he was¿'

James and Katherine meet at a wedding in London. It is January 2006, towards the end of the money-for-nothing years, and James is a man with a varied past ¿ entrepreneur, estate agent, film producer, horse-racing tipster, former dot com millionaire ¿ now living alone in a flat in Bloomsbury. Separated from her husband, a successful paparazzo, Katherine is working at an interim job in a luxury hotel. Taken with each other, they exchange phone numbers at the wedding, but from then on not much goes according to the script.

Narrated from several different perspectives, Spring is a kaleidoscopic and complex portrait of a relationship, of contemporary England, and of the ebb and flow of money. Instantly recognisable and unbearably real, it is a love story unlike any you will have read.

"Spring confirms that [Szalay] is a writer with the whole range of talents... Often outstanding"

David Szalay was born in Canada in 1974. His first novel, London and the South-East won the Betty Trask Prize and the Geoffrey Faber Memorial Prize. His second novel, The Innocent, was published by Jonathan Cape in 2009. He was was chosen as one of Granta's Best of Young British Novelists 2013. He lives in London.

"Spring confirms that [Szalay] is a writer with the whole range of talents... Often outstanding" -- Theo Tait Sunday Times "A brave and intelligent novel... This is one of those books that leaves you not only with admiration for the novelist, but also with a sense of wonder about the precision of the novel form itself" -- Chris Cleave Guardian "A texture of truthfulness quite unlike that of any other fiction about London that I know...a very beautifully poised novel" -- David Sexton Evening Standard "The forensic scrutiny of every aspect of a fledgling relationship, from both points of view, is one of the many delights of Spring... Devastatingly powerful...also extremely funny, in that understated, unexpected way that makes you burst into sudden noise in public places and alarm those around you. Szalay's dialogue is pithy and sharp; his peripheral characters lip-smackingly delicious" -- Leyla Sanai Independent on Sunday "The lives of two disconsolately unfulfilled people start to blaze, thanks to Szalay's often brutal honesty...formidable ear for dialogue - which transforms the most mundane exchanges into comedy, a la Mike Leigh - and seductively sensuous descriptions" -- Siobhan Murphy Metro
