I Could Love You

Nicholson, the author, is an Academy Award-nominated screenwriter. He wrote the screenplays for the Shadowlands and Gladiator, which have wildly varying subjects.

This book centers on relationships - between married couples, young singles, and artists and their relationship to their work. I read it in a day (yes, I had the day off) but I found it fascinating.

The book ponders relationship questions such as fidelity, trust, love, lost love, and hope. A friendly warning: this is not a "feel good" book. If you are blissfully in the stages of first love, this may not be for you. Too much reality.  

It is a sequel to "The Secret Intensity of Everyday Life". If you haven't read the first one, don't worry. While it may be useful, it's not necessary to understand the relationships.

View it in the library catalog here.

Read this if you enjoy Joanna Trollope, Nick Hornby, or Jonathan Tropper.
