Description

MAKING LOVE tells of the unrequited love of a library book for its reader Miranda Brown. After she sneaks it off its shelf of Mills & Boon romances in Shepherd's Bush library, it falls head over heels in love with her. When Miranda falls head over heels herself for Ferdinand, a handsome stranger with an unusual interest in her new reading matter, she unwittingly breaks the book's heart. But Ferdinand is really a spy, and the lovelorn book contains a conspiracy theory by Paul Pennyfeather that has been banned by the Secret Services. Miranda has taken the last remaining copy, hidden by its author among the romantic potboilers of his local library. Pennyfeather's memoir claims that Romantic Love does not exist, but is a State-propagated myth to keep the young and idealistic distracted from questioning their rule. As a consumer of these revelations, Miranda is now a single woman in jeopardy. Ferdinand's mission is to break Miranda's heart - and so prove that Love really does exist - or her neck. So begins a tail of spy-catcher jinks and James Bond seduction. Brill's book is an eccentric web of literary pastiche and invention. Told by a loveless library book, the real hero is the book you hold in your hands.
