"Anna and Louise could be sisters, but they don't know each other. They are both married with children, and for the most part, they are happy. On almost the same day, Anna, a psychiatrist, crosses paths with Yves, a writer, while Louise, a lawyer, meets Anna's analyst, Thomas. Love at first sight is still possible for those into their forties and long-married. But when you have already mapped out a life path, a passionate affair can come at a high price. For our four characters, their lives are unexpectedly turned upside down by the deliciously inconvenient arrival of love. For Anna, meeting Yves has brought a flurry of excitement to her life and made her question her values, her reliable husband, and her responsibilities to her children. For Louise, a successful career woman in a stable and comfortable marriage, her routine is uprooted by the youthful passion she feels for Thomas. Thought-provoking, sophisticated, and, above all, amusing, Enough About Love captures the euphoria of desire through tender and unflinching portraits of husbands, wives, and lovers."--Publisher.

Anna is happily married. She has two children. Then, one day, she meets someone—Yves. As she tells Thomas, her psychologist, it was “a real thunderbolt.” Thomas is inwardly amused by Anna’s account, but is himself struck by a thunderbolt when he meets Louise, a woman who is happily married with two children. In the novel’s prologue, the narrator warns, “Any man—or woman—who wants to hear nothing—or no more—about love should put this book down.” Thought-provoking and spectacularly creative, this French bestseller is not just a book about love; it is a work of art.
