Anne McElvoy invites three novelists into the studio to discuss Love - the theme of each of their new novels. A L Kennedy's Serious Sweet examines love in later life, Tahmima Anam explores different aspects of young love in The Bones of Grace and Alain de Botton says no-one lives happy ever after, we should talk a lot more about what comes next - hence the title of his book The Course of Love. Aside from whether Romanticism is plague or blessing, the writers also discuss whether writers themselves make good lovers and the challenge of making life choices in an increasingly mobile and crowded world. Presenter: Anne McElvoy Guests: A L Kennedy 'Serious Sweet' is out at the end of May 2016 Tahmima Anam 'The Bones of Grace' is out at the end of May 2016 Alain de Botton 'The Course of Love' is out now Producer: Jacqueline Smith
