As the reader comes to finish the novel, he realizes that Toussaint has made himself a hero of sorts, simply through the molding of his bleakly wonderful creation. What a marvelous novel. While Making Love has none of the humor of The Bathroom or Monsieur (both are recommended), it remains a worthwhile read for Toussaint's gifted description of lives coming apart. 8 people found this helpful.

Jean-Philippe Toussaint, Linda Coverdale (Translator). I loved the book's second half and a wonderful scene in a hotel swimming pool early on, but felt frustrated by the basic premise that the lead is carrying around hydrochloric acid with random, violent intention. Having read three of Toussaint's novels, I feel confident in saying he is at his best in the comic mode, writing about the day-to-day. He is a good noticer, and can be very funny. This one, however, is, I think, supposed to be stylish and sexy. My Life as a Russian Novel by Emmanuel Carrère (Metropolitan Books/Henry Holt, 2010)

Jean-Philippe Toussaint . Moving through a variety of locales and adventures, The Truth about Marie revisits the unnamed narrator of Toussaint’s acclaimed Running Away, reporting on his now disintegrated relationship with the titular Marie - the story switching deftly between first- and third-person as the narrator continues to drift through life, and Marie does her best to get on with hers.

An immediate bestseller in France, Making Love is an original and daring retelling of a classic theme: the end of an affair. As much an exploration of setting and place as it is of the affair that comes apart in them, Making Love follows a couple’s final days together in Japan. Toussaint writes with an economy and restraint that evoke the distinct imagery of film while allowing a startling proximity to the feelings of his characters. The result is vertiginous, standing traditional images on their head and transposing the conflict and confusion of lost intimacy onto the labyrinthine ultramodernism of Tokyo and Kyoto. Brilliantly written and strikingly original, this is a stunning work of new fiction from one of Europe’s most promising authors.
