Tennis has been Willy Novinsky's one love ever since she first picked up a racquet at the age of four. A middle-ranked pro at 23, she's met her match in Eric Oberdorf, a low-ranked, untested Princeton grad who also intends to make his mark on the international tennis circuit. Eric becomes Willy's first passion off the court, and eventually they marry.

But while wedded life begins well, full-tilt competition soon puts a strain on their relationship - and an unexpected accident sends driven and gifted Willy sliding irrevocably toward resentment, tragedy, and despair.

From acclaimed author Lionel Shriver comes a brilliant and unflinching novel about the devastating cost of prizing achievement over love. Download and start listening now!

    " Full of insight on the difficulties in relationships despite best intentions. "

    " Very readable, but disturbing book. I previously read "We need to talk about Kevin", and the heroine was not at all heroic. Neither is the female character in this book. However, I could not put it down. Shriver writes well about relationships, her female characters are fascinating, but not likable. "

    " I think I dislike Shriver's outlook on life. I certainly dislike the feeling I have after reading this novel. She writes well, and I think says true things, but she creates powerfully unpleasant characters whom I don't particularly want to get to know. I hated Willy. I hated Eva in We Need to Talk About Kevin. If I ever read another of her books, it won't be for a while. "

    " Lionel Shiver manages to get the right level of depression into her books - she is very good at her observations of human relationships - though this book doesn't have enough of a story for it's length. "
