Caroline’s Bikini by Kirsty Gunn – review
The possibility that something as beautiful as love might not be returned had always seemed unfair to me. I'm no stranger to the perils of unrequited love — and is there anything more devastating than not having one's affection returned? If one positive thing can be said about not having your feelings answered, it's that it makes one heck of a compelling story, and it's not a new concept to literature. From Shakespeare to Victor Hugo, from J. Rowling to Louisa May Alcott, the mines of unrequited love seem exhaustible, and with good reason. We allow ourselves to dwell in the fantasy of the person without ever having to deal with the very worst of a reality with them.
So much of fiction is about desire, a yearning of some kind or another … the love of reading itself a sort of intense affair. My book is a comedy: Evan and his friends make me smile. But these amusements are underpinned by some serious thinking about love stories and the meaning of fiction in our lives, with the following titles topping my list of inspirational work on that subject. The Canzoniere by Petrarch For a start, I had Petrarch in mind, and his great love for the year-old Laura, who the poet glimpsed coming out of church in and spent the rest of his life thinking about in the sequence of poems he wrote for her. The Divine Comedy by Dante Dante follows hard on his heels, of course, and was writing before him — his Divine Comedy a kind of early novel, as I think of it, in three parts, that was inspired by a similar kind of experience. Dante never knew his Beatrice either, yet the idea of her propelled his great work about visiting Hell and Purgatory and Heaven, to be met there by her: another fantasy made true in words.
