On Love is globally bestselling novelist-philosopher Alain De Botton's iconic debut the novel that launched his decorated literary career; and a funny, profound, and searingly true-to-life exploration of love. A man and a woman meet over casual conversation on a flight from Paris to London, and so begins a love story from fist kiss to first argument, elation to heartbreak, and everything in between. Each stage of the relationship is illuminated with starling clarity, as de Botton explores emotions often felt but rarely understood. Now, in tandem with the arrival of The Course of Love, de Botton's first novel in twenty years and one about mature love we celebrate the timeless debut about young love that serves as The Course of Love's precursor and companion. Reissued with a brilliant introduction by the New York Times bestselling author of How Should a Person Be?, Shelia Heti, On Love is a contemporary classic that should be read by anyone who has ever fallen in love.

Brilliant novel. A kind of a microscopic analysis of a relationship, from beginning to end, with the narrator referring to psychology, philosophy and politics with humour and grace.
