Robin and Ruth meet in the staff room of an East London school.

'This is heartache for grown ups. The Weight of Love pulls you in and does not let go.' ANNE ENRIGHT' Beautiful and painful, exquisitely written, shot through with nostalgia for our earlier selves.' MARIAN KEYES London, 1996.

Robin and Ruth meet in the staff room of an East London school. Robin, desperate for a real connection, instantly falls in love. Ruth, recently bereaved and fragile, is tentative. When Robin introduces Ruth to his childhood friend, Joseph, a tortured and talented artist, their attraction is instant. Powerless, Robin watches on as the girl he loves and his best friend begin a passionate and turbulent affair. Dublin 2017.

Robin and Ruth are married and have a son, Sid, who is about to emigrate to Berlin. Theirs is a marriage haunted by the ghost of Joseph and as the distance between them grows, Robin makes a choice that could have potentially devastating consequences. The Weight of Love is a beautiful exploration of how we manage life when the notes and beats of our existence, so carefully arranged, begin to slip off the stave.

An intimate and moving account of the intricacies of marriage and the myriad ways in which we can love and be loved. 'Delicate, powerful, hypnotic.' DONAL RYAN 'Fannin's novel is already likely to be a serious contender for one of the books of the year' SUNDAY TIMES
