How to Fall in Love with a Man who Lives in a Bush

Emmy Abrahamson

Julia, a young Swedish woman, lives alone in Vienna with her cat, teaching English to over-ambitious business leaders and under-achieving kids. One day she’s going to write a literary masterpiece and become friends with Elfriede Jelinek, but until then she’ll keep on filling in marketing surveys to kill time.

One day, on a park bench, she meets Ben and they fall in love. Everything’s perfect. Apart from a couple of minor facts: Ben lives in a bush and really needs to take a shower.

HOW TO FALL IN LOVE WITH A MAN WHO LIVES IN A BUSH is a wonderful, warm, witty comic love story about daring to choose with your heart and look beyond the surface; beyond appearances, expectations and even ragged clothes.
