Anna Raverat grew up in North Yorkshire and studied English at King's College, Cambridge University. She lives in London with her three children and is a consultant in organization and team development and leadership. Lover is her U.S. debut.
"When Londoner Kate discovers her husband Adam is having an affair, the toxic fallout engulfs every aspect of Kate's life: her high-powered job, her relationship with her two young daughters, her very identity. The writing is simply beautiful--moving and evocative, while skewering clichï¿½s about broken hearts and revenge. It's also the funniest book about a break-up you'll ever read, with a brilliant supporting cast of characters including Kate's horrible boss and a spectacularly sweary parrot." --Glamour (UK) "Raverat mines the depth of this strife with wit, warmth and a sophisticated wisdom that makes it an unputdownable read." --Psychologies "This is one of the most bittersweet, searing books about a break up we've ever read." --Cosmopolitan "In Lover, Anna Raverat tells the beautiful, moving, complicated story of how a good marriage turns bad, creating a mad-fast read that newly explores what it means to be a wife, mother, daughter, friend, and coworker navigating the inanities of corporate life. You'll never drink from a glass in a hotel room again." --Helen Klein Ross, author of What Was Mine "Anna Raverat is a humane and generous writer, giving voice to our best instincts and communicating, by quiet and often funny moments, a sense of our ability to overcome adversity with love." --Chris Cleave, bestselling author of Little Bee and Everyone Brave Is Forgiven "I wept through Lover by Anna Raverat. It's written with such a light touch, but is so piercing and so true." --Liza Klaussmann, author of Tigers in Red Weather "Wise and subtle and witty . . . Filled with humanity and warmth. A compulsively readable book about a breakup from a brilliant new writer." --Maggie Gee, author of The White Family
