Description

A sensational international bestseller, and winner of Frances’ coveted Prix Goncourt, ‘The Lover’ is an unforgettable portrayal of the incandescent relationship between two lovers, and of the hate that slowly tears the girl’s family apart.

Saigon, 1930s: a poor young French girl meets the elegant son of a wealthy Chinese family. Soon they are lovers, locked into a private world of passion and intensity that defies all the conventions of their society.

A sensational international bestseller, 'The Lover' is disturbing, erotic, masterly and simply unforgettable.

Reviews

‘Rarely have I read a novel so flawlessly written.’ Spectator

‘Very beautiful, highly intelligent, enjoyable and original.’ Sunday Times

‘Perfect, a “tour de force”…accessible in the way Thomas Mann’s “Death in Venice” or D.M. Thomas’s “The White Hotel” are accessible…dealing successfully with the strong themes of erotic love and death.’ New York Times Book Review

‘A spectacular success.’ Edmund White
