About the Author:

Adam Thorpe was born in Paris in 1956. His first novel, Ulverton, was published in 1992, and he has written nine others - most recently Flight - two collections of stories and five books of poetry. His new translation of Madame Bovary has just been published by Vintage. He lives in France with his wife and family.

Review:

"Adam Thorpe is brilliant. Utterly brilliant. I use the word advisedly, OED advisedly, the best a man can get... the book moved me so much that the denouement made me cry... Thorpe, I believe, may be so ambitious, so brilliant, he's actually trying to rewrite Flaubert" Daily Telegraph "Magnificent... A deftly plotted love story, full of startling disclosures, the novel draws one in irresistibly... Adam Thorpe is a marvel among contemporary British novelists, and we are lucky to have him" -- Ian Thomson Independent "This is recognisably a poet's book, stuffed with small luminous details and off-kilter observations and permanently alert to the strange texture of things...a hugely enjoyable book by a writer at the top of his game who's demonstrably still having great fun doing what he does. Long may that continue" -- Tim Martin Independent on Sunday "Brilliant... It is a rich book: sensuous, thoughtful and sad" Time Out "Thorpe demonstrates the foresight and guile of the seasoned storyteller, coupled with a poet's ability to knock the language for six... Between Each Breath is funny, well-observed and thought-provoking" -- Tibor Fischer Guardian
