An intoxicating short story from of Picador's most exciting writers. The Unrequited opens with the arrival in Oslo of Raphael Newell, a Dublin accountant. Someone who has always previously lived on the margins of life, Ray has come to Norway find the married woman he has fallen in love with. Rejuvenated and invigorated by the experience of being in love, Ray sees the world differently, everything and everyone around him is transformed, and he feels for the first time that he has really come alive. Recounting the couple's first meeting alongside Ray's Norwegian quest, The Unrequited is both love story and fable, a story for our times and -- in the themes of love, life and loss it explores -- one that is timeless, a story for all ages, in all senses of the word.
