The author of the critically acclaimed On Love offers an utterly delightful book that once more takes up the eternal theme of love. Alice, disappointed with men and searching for answers, meets Eric and embarks on an affair that is catalogued in all its thrills and pitfalls.
"The Romantic Movement sheds light on the nature of relationships . . . The method of telling much and showing little produces a good deal of wit, cogency, and humor."--John Updike, The New Yorker
"A reader gets whiffs of Donald Barthelme, Julian Barnes, Woody Allen, the films of Eric Rohmer . . . Mr. de Botton borrows exuberantly, and well, from his forebears . . . therein lies the buoyant charm of the approach."--Lisa Zeidner, The New York Times Book Review
