Description
Originally published in 1993, this book by the philosopher and author of How Proust Can Change Your Life and Religion for Atheists is his wildly successful debut, in which the 23-year-old Alain de Botton charts the progress of a love affair from the first kiss to a major argument and its reconciliation, from intimacy and tenderness to heartbreak. The work's genius lies in the way it minutely analyzes emotions we've all felt but have perhaps never understood so well, including a chapter on the anxieties of when and how to say "I love you" and another on the challenges of disagreeing with someone else's taste in shoes.

"Imagine, of all impossible things, a young British Woody Allen with the benefit of a classical education and you have the nameless and exquisitely erudite narrator of Essays in Love."Boston Sunday Globe

"Single-handedly, de Botton has taken philosophy back to its simplest and most important purpose: helping us to live our lives."Independent (London)
