Only Love Can Break Your Heart Fiction - General

Three stories about two neighbors who meet as young children and grow up together on Long Island during the late 60's and early 70's. The comforting and loving world they live in changes around them as their families fracture, society descends into chaos, and a war rages on. In the aftermath, they left on a wrecked, smoking landscape, searching for a new way to live when all of the signs have been burned down.

Reviews:
This collection has two lovely tales of growing up in Port Jefferson, New York, plus a remarkable story of complicated love -- sexual and familial -- amid scenes of poverty and emotional desolation. Bubbers has a fine, almost photographic sense of place and time, and a great talent at capturing the texture of life. The final story which gives its name to this collection, "Only Love Can Break Your Heart," ranks with some of the best short fiction written today." ***** Eugene Mirabelli

"These three separate stories about neighbours Johnny and Miriam growing up in the 1960s and 70s make for a moving and elegant novella. I very much enjoyed the directness and strength of the prose which has its own bleak beauty, and the push and pull of relationships and family was very well portrayed indeed. The ending is perfect too. Highly recommended." ***** Anne Brooke
