Best for a romantic break ... Rom-com fans will lap it up. GRAZIA If you could talk to someone in the past in order to influence the future, would you? That's the idea behind Rainbow Rowell's clever new book. WOMAN Landline's premise is fairly simple: given the chance to change a small aspect of the past, would you? But there's so much more. Rowell's way with dialogue is amazing (and useful, given that most of the book consists of telephone conversations). Neal's mother, only ever a presence on the other end of the line, is as well realised as any of the characters we get to 'see'. Landline is great on the complexities of adult relationships too, showing how a search for balance can be what love is made of and how a thousand tiny compromises mean more than the grandest romantic gesture EMERALD STREET
