“In Love, by Alfred Hayes, is a slim novel from 1953 that deserves to be better known. The cover of the new edition features an Elizabeth Bowen quote in which she terms the book “a little masterpiece,” and I’ve rarely seen the breakdown of a relationship, in all its banality and pettiness, evoked more vividly. It’s tough, fresh, very lovely, and will stay with you.”For more of what we’re loving this week, including Wilkie Collins’s The Moonstone, The New York Review of Books’ fiftieth anniversary, and Romanian concert pianist Radu Lupu at Carnegie Hall, click here.
