Remember Me... Summary


Remember Me... by Melvyn Bragg

'Melvyn Bragg has added another formidable chapter to one of the most distinguished literary series of recent times' David Robson, Sunday Telegraph

It was not love at first sight. It proved to be not much of a conversation...Nothing should have come of it.

A passionate but ultimately tragic love affair starts when two students - one French, one English - meet at university at the beginning of the sixties. From its tentative early stages, the relationship develops into a life-changing one, whose profound impact continues to reverberate forty years later.

'Daring and brave...With great skill and stunning insight, Bragg doesn't just tell a very tragic tale, he explores what it really means to love and be loved...eclipses anything Bragg has written before' Henry Sutton, Daily Mirror

'A powerful novel that communicates difficult emotional truths. Yet its dark themes are balanced by the vivid portrait it paints of 1960s London' Frank Egerton, The Times

'Utterly absorbing. Melvyn Bragg is worth a host of more fashionable writers. He never shows off, but tells us how it is' Allan Massie, Scotsman

'A terrific book' John Harding, Daily Mail

Remember Me... Reviews


'All the craft and graft of good writing are here . . . Be warned, the last few pages are unsentimental, lump-in-the-throat stuff, presaging the extended emotional hangover that is the aftermath of a terrific book.' * John Harding, Daily Mail *
'This sequence of novels is one of the best and most ambitious things written in the last 20 years, and REMEMBER ME... is utterly absorbing. Melvyn Bragg is worth a host of more fashionable writers. He never shows off, but tells us how it is.' * Allan Massie, Scotsman *
Daring and brave . . . With great skill and stunning insight, Bragg doesn't just tell a very tragic tale, he explores what it really means to love and be loved . . . eclipses anything Bragg has written before * Henry Sutton, Daily Mirror *
One can only applaud the seriousness, the humanity, the emotional honesty of the writing. Melvyn Bragg has added another forbidable chapter to one of the most distinguished literary series of recent times. * David Robinson, Sunday Telegraph *
