If I Can't Have You
'One of the best books I’ve ever read' Ruth Jones
What if the problem with your love life is you?
If I Can't Have You by Charlotte Levin is an all-consuming novel about loneliness, obsession and how far we go for the ones we love.
Samuel, the day we met I knew I’d finally found what I’ve been waiting for.
Happiness, at last.
Then you left me.
And now I am alone.
Everyone I love leaves in the end.
But not this time.
I’m not giving up on us.
I’m not giving up on you.
When you love someone, you never let them go.
That’s why for me, this is just beginning.
In the media
So beautifully written, such a devastatingly compelling story. I can honestly say it’s one of the best books I’ve ever read - it is without shadow of a doubt, EASILY up there with The Girl on the Train and Eleanor Oliphant
This is superb. The main character Constance is brilliantly flawed and so compassionately drawn - it’s raw and compulsive and disturbing and very well done indeed
Harriet Tyce, author of Richard & Judy Book Club pick Blood Orange
An exceptionally raw and visceral and painfully funny novel. Charlotte Levin writes so well and so powerfully about loneliness, longing, love and loss that Constance will stay with me for a long time
Emma Flint, Women's Prize longlisted author of Little Deaths
Compulsively readable and darkly funny with pin-sharp characterization. Love love loved it
