The Love Department by William Trevor - a darkly comic novel about a thief of the heart, by one of the world's best writers. From the offices of her Love Department, Lady Dolores cures the heartaches of the lonely wives of Wimbledon with inimitable flourish and finesse. When her newest protege, the somewhat naive Edward Blakeston-Smith, is sent on a mission - to learn the secrets of seductive, scheming Septimus Tuam and stop him in his tracks - he learns all about love, its friends and enemies. The Love Department was William Trevor's third novel, published in 1966.

It will be enjoyed by readers of Colm Toibin, Evelyn Waugh and Muriel Spark. "A fantasy which proliferates entertainingly from a germ of reality - the reality of boredom felt by comfortably-off suburban wives". (Listener). "William Trevor can pack into ten or twenty pages an astounding richness of pathos, humour and tragedy". (Francis King). William Trevor was born in Mitchelstown, County Cork, in 1928, and was educated at Trinity College, Dublin. He has lived in England for many years.
