'Love me, love my game' says twenty-three year-old Willy Novinsky. Ever since she picked up a racquet at the age of four, tennis has been Willy's one love, until the day she meets Eric Oberdorf. She's a middle-ranked professional tennis player and he's a Princeton graduate who took up playing tennis at the age of eighteen. Low-ranked but untested, Eric, too, aims to make his mark on the international tennis circuit. But, as Eric's ranking climbs, rivalry turns to resentment, and Willy risks losing everything.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A brilliant tale of doomed love * Observer *
Shriver has a terrible gift for laying bare for us the emotions that lie just beneath the skin. I doubt that there is any thoughtful woman who does not recognize herself somewhere in Shriver's writing -- Lisa Jardine * Financial Times *
So fearless that, although readers may not sympathise with her, they'll understand why she's driven to destroy what she loves * Metro *
As taut as a well-strung racquet * Marie Claire *
A terrific approach shot with which she sets things up for the deadly putaway volley that is Kevin * Independent *
A truly remarkable star in the literary firmament -- Lisa Jardine * Financial Times *
