A Love Affair (Italian: Un amore) is a 1963 novel by the Italian writer Dino Buzzati. It tells the story of an architect in Milan who falls in love with a much younger ballerina. The novel has an unusually conventional narrative style compared to many of the author's other works.[1]

An English translation by Joseph Green was published in 1964.[2] The novel was the basis for the 1965 film Un amore, directed by Gianni Vernuccio.[3]
