Lessing's first novel in seven years is nothing less than a publishing event. When 65-year-old Sarah Durham falls in love with a 28-year-old actor, and later with a more suitable 35-year-old director, she finds herself in a condition she thought the province of younger women. A brilliant anatomy of love, longing, desire, and sexuality in older women, Love, Again will raise the consciousness of readers today and leave its mark on future generations of women.

display_description Love, Again tells the story of a 65-year-old woman who falls in love and struggles to maintain her sanity. Widowed for many years, with grown children, Sarah is a writer who works in the theater in London. During the production of a play, she falls in love with a seductive young actor, the beautiful and androgynous 28-year-old Bill, and then with the more mature 35-year-old director Henry. Finding herself in a state of longing and desire that she had thought was the province of younger women, Sarah is compelled to explore and examine her own personal history of love, from her earliest childhood desires to her most recent obsessions. The result is a brilliant anatomy of love from a master of human psychology who remains one of the most daring writers of fiction at work today.
