A funny and charming new novel from Xiaolu Guo about love, language, displacement and finding our place in the world

'A fragmentary meditation on the nature of love' Guardian

A Chinese woman comes to post-Brexit London to start a new life, away from her old world.

She knew she would be lonely, adrift in the city, but will her new relationship bring her closer to this land she has chosen - will love give her a home?

A Lover's Discourse is an exploration of romantic love told through fragments of conversations between the two lovers as they navigate their romance on their unmoored houseboat and in a stifling flatshare in East London.

Suffused with a wonderful sense of humour, this intimate and tender novel asks universal questions- What is the meaning of home when we've been uprooted? How can a man and woman be together? And how best to find solid ground in a world of uncertainty?
