“Shriver shows in a masterstroke why character is fate and how sport reveals it.” New York Times Book Review

From the author of the New York Times bestseller The Post-Birthday World, and the international bestseller We Need to Talk About Kevin comes a brilliant and unflinching novel about the devastating cost of prizing achievement over love

Tennis has been Willy Novinsky''s one love ever since she first picked up a racquet at the age of four. A middle-ranked pro at twenty-three, she''s met her match in Eric Oberdorf, a low-ranked, untested Princeton grad who also intends to make his mark on the international tennis circuit. Eric becomes Willy''s first passion off the court, and eventually they marry. But while wedded life begins well, full-tilt competition soon puts a strain on their relationship—and an unexpected accident sends driven and gifted Willy sliding irrevocably toward resentment, tragedy, and despair.

Lionel Shriver''s novels includeThe New Republic,So Much for That,The Post-Birthday World, and the international bestsellerWe Need to Talk About Kevin. Her journalism has appeared inThe Guardian, theNew York Times, theWall Street Journal, and many other publications.
