Beschreibung

James and Katherine meet at a wedding in London in 2006, towards the end of the money-for-nothing years. James is a man with a varied past now living alone in a flat in Bloomsbury; Katherine is separated from her husband and working in an interim job in a luxury hotel. They exchange phone numbers at the wedding, but from then on not much goes according to the script...

David Szalay is the author of four previous works of fiction:
Spring,
The Innocent,
London and the South-East, for which he was awarded the Betty Trask and Geoffrey Faber Memorial prizes, and
All That Man Is, for which he was awarded the Gordon Burn prize and Plimpton Prize for Fiction, and shortlisted for the Man Booker prize. Born in Canada, he grew up in London, and now lives in Budapest.

"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
