    Part memoir, part manifesto, and including chapters on dating, work, sport, babies, families, anger and friendship, it is based on the simple premise that understanding why we fail ultimately makes us stronger. It's an audiobook about learning from our mistakes and about not being afraid. Uplifting, inspiring and rich in stories from Elizabeth’s own life, How to Fail reveals that failure is not what defines us; rather it is how we respond to it that shapes us as individuals.

    Lutte des classes, ambition politique, désirs refoulés et violence sourde... Une œuvre originale et parfaitement construite qui allie roman noir à la tension implacable et comédie sociale mordante, quelque part entre le "Monsieur Ripley" de Patricia Highsmith et "Le Dîner" de Herman Koch, le tout porté par un humour grinçant tout britannique. Ben Fitzmaurice est devenu le meilleur ami de Martin Gilmour le jour où, dans la cour de leur très chic école, Ben, héritier d'une prestigieuse dynastie, a pris la défense de Martin, petit boursier.
