You Left Early : A True Story of Love and Alcohol Paperback / softback


`Extraordinarily powerful' Emma Thompson There are a million love stories, and a million stories of addiction.

This one is transcendent. Louisa Young met Robert Lockhart when they were both 17.

Their stop-start romance lasted decades, in which time he became a celebrated composer and she, an acclaimed novelist. This is both a compelling portrait of a lifelong love affair, and an incredibly affecting guide to how the partner of a 'charismatic, infuriating, adorable, self-sabotaging' alcoholic can find the strength to survive when the disease rips both their lives apart.
