**THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER** Would you rather love the more, and suffer
the more; or love the less, and suffer the less? That is, I think, finally,
the only real question. First love has lifelong consequences, but Paul
doesn't know anything about that at nineteen. At nineteen, he's proud of
the fact his relationship flies in the face of social convention. As he
grows older, the demands placed on Paul by love become far greater than he
could possibly have foreseen. Tender and wise, The Only Story is a deeply
moving novel by one of fiction's greatest mappers of the human heart.
