Sparks fly in this delightful novel about two
burned out professionals who meet at a ramshackle resort on
the British seaside—from the #1 New York Times
bestselling author of The Party Crasher.
“I devoured The Burnout in one greedy gulp.
It’s funny, sad, relatable, and brilliantly done.
Sophie Kinsella is the queen of romantic
can do anything . . . just not everything.
Sasha has had it. She cannot bring herself to respond to
another inane, “urgent” (but obviously not at
all urgent) email or participate in the corporate employee
joyfulness program. She hasn’t seen her friends in
months. Sex? Seems like a lot of effort. Even cooking dinner
takes far too much planning. Sasha has hit a wall.
Armed with good intentions to drink kale smoothies, try
yoga, and find peace, she heads to the seaside resort she
loved as a child. But it’s the off season, the hotel
is in a dilapidated shambles, and she has to share the beach
with the only other occupant: a grumpy guy named Finn, who
seems as stressed as Sasha. How can she commune with nature
when he’s sitting on her favorite rock, watching her?
Nor can they agree on how best to alleviate their burnout
(Sasha: manifesting, wild swimming; Finn: drinking whisky,
getting pizza delivered to the beach).
curious messages, seemingly addressed to Sasha and Finn,
begin to appear on the beach, the two are forced to
talk—about everything. How did they get so burned out?
Can either of them remember something they used to love?
(Answer: surfing!) And the question they try and fail to
ignore: what does the energy between them—flaring even
in the face of their bone-deep exhaustion—signify?
