Coup de coeur
Coup de coeur (Literature), by Celia

Once again Brandon Taylor's writing just blows you away. This novel is set in a college town in the American Midwest, and it centres around a group of friends and lovers navigating their youth as an integral chapter of their lives comes to a close. It is an intimate and dynamic book that again showcases Taylor's great talent.

'Funny, merciless, brilliant... I loved it' CURTIS SITTENFELD, bestselling author of Romantic Comedy

Seamus, Fyodor, Ivan, Noah and Fatima are running out of time to decide on their futures

In a university town in the American Midwest, this circle of lovers and friends ask themselves: what is the right thing to stake a life on? Work, love, money, dance, poetry? Is love possible without harm? And what does true connection look like in an age of precarity?

The author of the Booker Prize-shortlisted author of Real Life returns with a deeply involving new novel of young men and women trying to work out what they want, and who they are.
