“Enough About Love is awfully cute. It is also absorbing and witty, and the more impressive for its formal constraints.” —Lorin Stein, Harper’s Magazine
“What could be more romantic than falling in love in Paris? Unless you are already married, in which case it’s a little more complicated, as in Hervé Le Tellier’s Enough About Love …Le Tellier writes about middle-aged desire and its consequences with empathy and humor.” —Washington Post
“It is a complicated novel, artfully told and translated and eerily familiar, the way love stories so often are.” —Los Angeles Times
“At least as intriguing as how the French make their bread taste so good is how they manage all those extramarital love affairs they’re said to have.” —The New York Times
“It’s a French intellectual sex romp, an updated Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice if they had Lacan, Queneau, and Barthes on their analysts’ shelves…Fluidly translated by Adrianna Hunter, Enough About Love graphs love’s disruptive geometries in a playful manner.” —Bomb Magazine
“The prologue warns, ‘Any man — or woman — who wants to hear nothing — or no more — about love should put this book down.’ We’ll be surprised if it leaves your hands.” —Daily Candy
“This is a book about love, certainly, but it is also a book about love stories, and the way in which those stories play out according to their own logic. Watching Hervé Le Tellier conduct that process as he leads his characters in and out of love, one is reminded that literature, too, is an affair of the heart.” —World Literature Today
“A wise and witty writer, [Tellier] brings Parisian flair to this tale of romantic entanglement.” —BookPage
“A touching and thought-provoking study of attraction, responsibility, and love.” —Publishers Weekly
“Two love triangles (equal one love hexagon?) that reveal much—or at least enough—about love… Le Tellier examines the possibilities of love after 40, and he deals with this issue with patience, understanding and bemusement.” —Kirkus Reviews
“Both thoroughly complex and utterly simple...Middle-aged romance has rarely seemed so intriguing.” —Booklist
“Elegantly constructed, and with humor, wit, and touching honesty, Hervé Le Tellier tells a classic love story tweaked with a modern sensibility. I loved this intelligent and beguiling French novel, infused with that ‘Je ne sais quoi’ and a pleasure to read from the first page to the last.” —Katharine Davis, author of Capturing Paris
“A grab bag of luminous angles and viewpoints of the kaleidoscope of love.” —Marie Claire (France)
“If there was to be only one quintessential 'French novel' this fall, it should be this one.” —Elle (France)
“A novel that's full of surprises and strikes out against banality, cliches, and platitudes.” —Lire
