A fierce, compelling account of the nature and origins of love from Doris Lessing, one of the most acclaimed writers of the twentieth century and winner of the Nobel Pize for Literature 2007.
Sarah Durham, sixty-year-old producer and founder of a leading fringe theatre company, commissions a play based on the journals of Julie Vairon, a beautiful, wayward nineteenth-century mulatto woman. It captivates all who come into contact with it, and dramatically changes the lives of all those who take part in it. For Sarah the changes are profound – she falls in love with two younger men, causing her to relive her own stages of growing up, from immature and infantile with the beautiful and androgynous Bill, to a mature love with Henry.

Love, Again is Doris Lessing’s first novel since The Fifth Child in 1988. It tells the story of Sarah Durham, an old woman, who falls in love with two younger men, one after the other. Doris Lessing explores themes she has never tackled before – the sexuality of older men and women and the origins of our need for love.Review:
'”Love, Again” grips, maddens, depresses and excites the reader from the first page to the last. A. S. Byatt, The Times
'A grand novel, boldly hewn … An encounter with a magnificent mind and temperament in artistic maturity, capable of turning her equal gaze on George Eliot.’ Independent on Sunday
'I have never seen love's effects and depredations described in more minute detail … a wholly compelling book, as vigorous and thought-provoking as anything she has ever written.' New Statesman
'By restoring love to the centre of the novel, Lessing has written a book that readers will love; a novel that Stendhal and Colette would have been proud to have written.' Scotsman
