Have you ever loved someone enough to die for them? Or even kill for them?
Ellen Millar is an independent soul. An actress whose star is in the ascendant, she also has a partially decorated flat, a mountain of debt and some seriously good friends to sustain her. Into the equation of her life comes Aedan. An Irishman. Their attraction is instant; their affair intense and all-consuming. This five-day courtship is the prelude to a life together, until Aedan returns to Ireland and realises that some emotional entanglements are impossible to untie.
Jane Slavin conveys the agony of a broken heart and a restless mind with shocking clarity. In Ellen Millar, she has created a candid, witty and uncompromising narrator whose addiction to one man takes her close to madness.
"An astonishing novel.... Brilliant on the theme of obsessional love; funny, sexy, painful and totally readable." (Fay Weldon)
"Jane Slavin's first novel has more pace and panache than any other fiction I have read this year...Slavin writes cleverly about sex and touchingly about the displacement activities of the broken-hearted. Clearly, she is indecently talented." (Rose Tremain, 'Book of the Year' - The Daily Telegraph)
"A vivacious first novel tracing the progress of an independent young woman's descent into obsession." (Sally Feldman, 'Pick of the Paperbacks' - Good Housekeeping)
