New Radio 4 Project For David: Love Virtually

David Tennant will record an adaptation of the Daniel Glattauer novel Love Virtually along with Emilia Fox for BBC Radio 4. The production will be broadcast as the Afternoon Play on Thursday 8th March at 2.15pm.

From the official Press Release:

Have you ever just clicked with someone . . . ?

It begins by chance: Leo receives emails in error from an unknown woman called Emmi. Being polite he replies, and Emmi writes back. A few brief exchanges are all it takes to spark a mutual interest in each other, and soon Emmi and Leo are sharing their innermost secrets and longings. The erotic tension simmers, and, despite Emmi being happily married it seems only a matter of time before they will meet in person. Will their feelings for each other survive the test of a real-life encounter?

And if so, what then?

Glattauer was born in Vienna and still lives and works in the city. Love Virtually sold over two million copies  in Germany. Reviews following the release of the English translation:

"Just what you need"   Wendy Holden 

"An ingenious tightly plotted suspense story. As with a thriller, there is pleasure to be had here in trying to predict the turn of events" Times Literary Supplement

"I couldn't put it down" Time Out

"The end is as unexpected as it is inevitable. The book is translated from German, but the whole thing is tout à fait" Guardian

"This was a massive, million-plus bestseller in Glattauer’s native Germany, and it’s easy to see why. Short, striking and snappily written, it explores the brilliant premise of love by accidental e-mail" Daily Mirror

"A modern romance that feels both fresh and traditional" Sunday Times

"Read it, you won’t be disappointed" vulpes libris

The novel is released by MacLehose Press, an imprint of Quercus Books devoted to the translation of fiction into English. For more details about the title click here .
