Hampstead Fever comes under the genre of contemporary literary fiction. The book is set in London and is the sequel to One Night at the Jacaranda, where a group of people met at a speed dating event. In Hampstead Fever the reader can meet some of these characters again.
Dan and Laure are a couple with an eleven month old child. Dan, an ex-prisoner, is a chef. He’s dissatisfied with the lack of sex on offer in his relationship.
