Love Lasts Three Years by Frederic Beigbeder

Love Lasts Three Years

Frederic Beigbeder

Marc Marronier comes of age whilst exploring his professed belief that 'love lasts only three years'. Despite the wit – the author’s trademark is wrong-footing humour - this is not an easy read. But make up your mind to enjoy the constant changes in style (including the two pages without full stops, let alone paragraphs) and just go with the flow. I guarantee you'll find Marc's surprising metamorphosis well worth any effort.
