Synopsis

Sunday Times Bestseller.

Winner of The Women's Prize for Fiction.

From the acclaimed author of Swing Time, White Teeth and Grand Union, discover a brilliantly funny and deeply moving story about love and family.

Why do we fall in love with the people we do? Why do we visit our mistakes on our children? What makes life truly beautiful?

Set between New England and London, On Beauty concerns a pair of feuding families - the Belsey's and the Kipp's - and a clutch of doomed affairs.

It puts low morals among high ideals and asks some searching questions about what life does to love. For the Belsey's and the Kipp's, the confusions - both personal and political - of our uncertain age are about to be brought close to home: right to the heart of family.
