Love Story, eh? I recall that the film was very popular, a real tearjerker. “Love means never having to say you're are sorry.”
A number of years ago I saw some, but not all, episodes of a serialization of A Town Like Alice. It might be nice to read the complete story. Given the length of the television series I am surprised that the book is listed at only 370 pages.
Then of course there is Lolita available.
