A philandering art dealer tries to give up casual love affairs - seeking only passionate kisses as a substitute.

A man recounts his personal history through the things he has stolen from others throughout his life.

A couple chart the journey of their five year relationship backwards, from awkward reunion to lovelorn first encounter.

And, at the heart of the book, a 24-year old young woman, Bethany Mellmoth, embarks on a year-long journey of wishful and tentative self-discovery.

The Dreams of Bethany Mellmoth depicts the random encounters that bring the past bubbling to the surface; the impulsive decisions that irrevocably shape a life; and the endless hesitations and loss-of-nerve that wickedly complicate it. These funny, surprising and moving stories are a resounding confirmation of Boyd's powers as one of our most original and compelling storytellers.

A writer of subtlety, flare and depth William Boyd began his literary career with 1981’s A Good Man in Africa which won both the Whitbread Award and the Somerset Maugham Prize. He is best known for his espionage thriller Restless and the expansive drama Any Human Heart, both of which have been adapted for television.
