Summary
'This presumably being the fact that he was in love with her. Or thought he was. Or said he was. Or said he thought he was...' James and Katherine meet at a wedding in London. It is January 2006, towards the end of the money-for-nothing years, and James is a man with a varied past - entrepreneur, estate agent, film producer, horse-racing tipster, former dot com millionaire - now living alone in a flat in Bloomsbury. Separated from her husband, a successful paparazzo, Katherine is working at an interim job in a luxury hotel. Taken with each other, they exchange phone numbers at the wedding, but from then on not much goes according to the script. Narrated from several different perspectives, "Spring" is a kaleidoscopic and complex portrait of a relationship, of contemporary England, and of the ebb and flow of money. Instantly recognisable and unbearably real, it is a love story unlike any you will have read
Summary
Follows the relationship between James, a self-analytical entrepreneur with a checkered past and Katherine, a hotel manager, separated from her husband and not quite sure if she is ready for love.
