Reviews

"Enough About Love is awfully cute. It is also absorbing and witty, and the more impressive for its formal constraints." --Lorin Stein, Harper's Magazine "What could be more romantic than falling in love in Paris? Unless you are already married, in which case it's a little more complicated, as in Herv� Le Tellier's Enough About Love ...Le Tellier writes about middle-aged desire and its consequences with empathy and humor." --Washington Post "It is a complicated novel, artfully told and translated and eerily familiar, the way love stories so often are." --Los Angeles Times "At least as intriguing as how the French make their bread taste so good is how they manage all those extramarital love affairs they're said to have." --The New York Times "It's a French intellectual sex romp, an updated Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice if they had Lacan, Queneau, and Barthes on their analysts' shelves...Fluidly translated by Adrianna Hunter, Enough About Love graphs love's disruptive geometries in a playful manner." --Bomb Magazine "The prologue warns, 'Any man -- or woman -- who wants to hear nothing -- or no more -- about love should put this book down.' We'll be surprised if it leaves your hands." --Daily Candy "This is a book about love, certainly, but it is also a book about love stories, and the way in which those stories play out according to their own logic. Watching Herv� Le Tellier conduct that process as he leads his characters in and out of love, one is reminded that literature, too, is an affair of the heart." --World Literature Today "A wise and witty writer, [Tellier] brings Parisian flair to this tale of romantic entanglement." --BookPage "A touching and thought-provoking study of attraction, responsibility, and love." --Publishers Weekly "Two love triangles (equal one love hexagon?) that reveal much--or at least enough--about love... Le Tellier examines the possibilities of love after 40, and he deals with this issue with patience, understanding and bemusement." --Kirkus Reviews "Both thoroughly complex and utterly simple...Middle-aged romance has rarely seemed so intriguing." --Booklist "Elegantly constructed, and with humor, wit, and touching honesty, Herv� Le Tellier tells a classic love story tweaked with a modern sensibility. I loved this intelligent and beguiling French novel, infused with that 'Je ne sais quoi' and a pleasure to read from the first page to the last." --Katharine Davis, author of Capturing Paris "A grab bag of luminous angles and viewpoints of the kaleidoscope of love." --Marie Claire (France) "If there was to be only one quintessential 'French novel' this fall, it should be this one." --Elle (France) "A novel that's full of surprises and strikes out against banality, cliches, and platitudes." --Lire
