Lovereading view...

The ultimate weepy. Two people from different sides of the tracks meet at Harvard and fall in love. We don’t really need to say too much more. If you don’t know the story though you really must read it.

August 2009 Guest Editor Erica James on Love Story by ERICH SEGAL

Eric Segal’s Love Story was another book I read when I had just started writing and I was really struck by the witty and snappy dialogue and the sparseness of the narrative. As short as the novel is – I call it bite-sized! – it’s an excellent example of less is more and I always try to remind myself of this when I’m writing.

Synopsis

Love Story by Erich Segal

He is Oliver Barrett IV, a rich jock from a stuffy Wasp family on his way to a Harvard degree and a career in law.

She is Jenny Cavilleri, a wisecracking working-class beauty studying music at Radcliffe.

Opposites in nearly every way. But they fell in love.

This is their story.

This bestselling classic was also made into a heartbreaking film with Ryan O'Neal and Ali MacGraw.
