Description

The debut novel from the creator of HBO's Succession, premiering in Summer 2018. It's 1994, and war rages on in Yugoslavia-Sarajevo is under siege, and Bosnia's different ethnic groups are battling for control of the newly independent country. Hundreds of miles away, in a posh dining room in west London, Andrew is in a similarly precarious situation: the fine balancing act of breathing, blinking, and sipping champagne at the same time. Penny, who may be the love of his life, is about to make the Great Announcement to her parents: that she, Andrew, and a handful of other young idealists are headed to Bosnia to stop the war by performing peace plays from the back of their van. But more important than peace-does Penny like Andrew, too? Or does she like Simon, who Andrew concedes is "essentially me, only better"? Will this trip across Europe finally bring them together, or will Andrew die in a minefield? And just how long will it take the gang to figure out that Andrew does not, in fact, speak Serbo-Croat? From one of England's most lauded comedy writers, Love, Sex, and Other Foreign Policy Goals is a satiric, absurd, and laugh-out-loud romp about tenderhearted, misguided dilettantes traveling through war-torn Europe, with nothing but a half-written script to protect them.
