Book description
`This early stocking filler of a novel ... is a brutal treat' Daily Mail



From the award-winning novelist and short story writer, Lionel Shriver, comes a literary gem, a story about love and the power of a gift.


When Weston Babansky receives an extravagant engagement present from his best friend (and old flame) Jillian Frisk, he doesn't quite know what to make of it - or how to get it past his fiancee. Especially as it's a massive, handmade, intensely personal sculpture that they'd have to live with forever.


As the argument rages about whether Jillian's gift was an act of pure platonic generosity or something more insidious, battle lines are drawn...


Can men and women ever be friends? Just friends?


Described by the Sunday Times as `a brilliant writer' with `a strong, clear and strangely seductive voice', Lionel Shriver has written a glittering examination of friendship, ownership and the conditions of love.
