Enough About Love

Hervé Le Tellier, trans. from the French by Adriana Hunter, Other Press, $14.95 trade paper (240p) ISBN 978-1-59051-399-6
"Any man—or woman—who wants to hear nothing—or no more—about love should put this book down," warns Le Tellier in this complicated tale of the romantic lives of four Parisians. Anna Stein and Louise Blum have never met, but their lives are comparable: both are married with children, settled and reasonably happy, until, within days, each one meets a man who will upset the equilibrium of their lives. Anna, a doctor married to a doctor, comes under the spell of a free-spirited writer, Yves Janvier, while lawyer Louise, whose husband is a mild-mannered scientist, falls for Anna's analyst, Dr. Thomas Le Gall. Comedy and pathos ensue as the cast of wives, husbands, and lovers struggle to reconcile their values with their passions. "Desire will not allow for simple explanations," Le Tellier observes as he skillfully weaves a tapestry of his characters' adventures. "When you don't know where you want to go, it doesn't matter which path you take," Anna decides as she contemplates a difficult decision, the dilemma that these four very real, very flawed, and very likable people all face. A touching and thought-provoking study of attraction, responsibility, and love. (Feb.)
