Alain de Botton

Alain de Botton is a writer and television producer who lives in London and aims to make philosophy relevant to everyday life. He can be contacted by email directly via www.alaindebotton.comHe is a writer of essayistic books, which refer both to his own experiences and ideas- and those of artists, philosophers and thinkers. It's a style of writing that has been termed a 'philosophy of everyday life.'His first book, Essays in Love [titled On Love in the US], minutely analysed the process of falling in and out of love. The style of the book was unusual, because it mixed elements of a novel together with reflections and analyses normally found in a piece of non-fiction. It's a book of which many readers are still fondest.Bibliography:* Essays In Love (1993)* The Romantic Movement (1994)* Kiss and Tell (1995)* How Proust Can Change Your Life (1997)* The Consolations of Philosophy (2000)* The Art of Travel (2002)* Status Anxiety (2004)* The Architecture of Happiness (2006)* The Pleasures and Sorrows of Work (2009)
