In this video, Hervé Le Tellier reads an excerpt from his novel Enough About Love, which follows the fortunes of two couples who unexpectedly encounter love at a point long after their lives appear to be settled. The women enjoy successful careers, happy enough marriages and satisfying family lives. The men, a writer and a psychiatrist, are both single and have stopped believing in a love that arrives like a thunderbolt.

Thought-provoking, sophisticated, and, above all, amusing, Enough About Love captures the euphoria of desire through tender and unflinching portraits of husbands, wives, and lovers.

On May 3, Hervé Le Tellier visited Pittsburgh to give a reading with Kyung-Sook Shin from South Korea and David Bezmozgis, who born in Latvia and now lives in Canada. The event was sponsored by City of Aslyum/Pittsburgh in partnership with PEN/America.
