After a 23-year hiatus from writing novels, philosopher Alain de Botton is back with a new work of fiction that explores the challenges of long-term relationships. “The Course of Love” follows Kirsten and Rabih from their passion-fueled beginning as a couple to an inevitable infidelity. In the novel, de Botton downplays romanticism and champions a more rational approach to love. He joins us to discuss his latest work and his thoughts on love in the modern age.
