Love Story Author:Erich Segal "For someone who is in love, or was in love, or hopes to be in love" -St. Louis Post-Dispatch — LOVE STORY — "Once in awhile, a love story appears that embodies so much truth and so little that is false or saccharine that it speaks to a whole generation... The book that will reach the Class of 1970 is Erich Segal's LOVE STORY" -Miami Herald — "Swee... more »t, short, sad... It will reach readers on both sides of the generation gap" -John Barkham, Saturday Review Syndicate
"A lump forms in the throat and keeps on growing" -The New York Times
"Segal has tricked us into reading a novel about youth today that has little sex, no drugs, and a tear-jerking ending; and worse, he has made us love it, ponder it, and feel it to be completely contemporary" -Paul Goldberger, Yale '72, The New Journal
ERICH SEGAL is a graduate of Harvard and its track team, a screenwriter (the Beatles' Yellow Submarine), author of scholarly books on classical antiquity, a professor of literature at Yale, and a member of the National Advisory Council of the Peace Corps.
