Aldo Cassidy is an entrepreneurial genius. At thirty-nine, he dominates the baby pram market and rewards his success with a custom Bentley. But Aldo's bourgeois life is upended by a chance encounter with Shamus--a charismatic writer whose first and only novel blazoned across the firmament twenty years earlier. The two develop a passionate friendship that draws Aldo--smitten also with his new friend's luscious wife--into a life of reckless hedonism that threatens to consume them all.

John le Carré's The Naïve and Sentimental Lover offers a dark and ribald send-up of both middle-class and bohemian pretensions that will astonish and delight his many fans.
