Susie Boyt writes with a mordant wit and vivid style which are at their best in Loved and Missed.

Examining the limits, disappointments and excesses of love in all its forms, this marvellously absorbing novel, full of insight and compassion, delights as much as it disturbs.

This time she'll get the love right.
