An ingenious comic thriller told by a distressed library book that has fallen in love with its reader.
MARIUS BRILL attended St John's College, Oxford, after a career as a doorman, journalist and prize-winning playwright at the Soho Theatre. The script of his film, DIARY OF A SURREAL KILLER, was nominated for a BAFTA Carl Foreman award. His comic radio series, sLaughter in the Dark, played to critical acclaim on Radio Four. MAKING LOVE: A CONSPIRACY OF THE HEART is his first book.
'As a rule, if a book starts talking to you ... head for funny
farm. While you're down there, you might meet Marius Brill, who has
produced a book that does precisely that, one so entirely
fantastical as to be quite scary ... An oddity to savour' * Arena
'Enjoyable comic tale enhanced by some genuine philosophical questions' * Books *
'Fantastic, hilarious ... verbal pyrotechnics, supported by a fecund imagination of the first order' * The Times *
'An absurd, hilarious, spy-cum-action-cum-postmodern thriller, Making Love is incredibly clever without showing off, self-referential without being self-congratulatory, and a damn good read. Fantastic' * The List *
'An exceptional piece of writing...Making Love is as winning a first novel as I have read in a long time' * Sunday Telegraph *
