"Funny, touching and infused with wonder, as all love stories should be."--San Francisco Examiner An enduring classic and the basis for the blockbuster 1970 film starring Ryan O'Neal and Ali McGraw, this special 50th anniversary edition of Love Story features a new introduction by Francesca Segal, as well as a P.S. section with illuminating material about the book. It is the story of Oliver Barrett IV, a rich jock from a stuffy WASP family on his way to a Harvard degree and a career in law, and Jenny Cavilleri, a wisecracking working-class beauty studying music at Radcliffe. Oliver and Jenny - kindred spirits from different worlds - meet, talk, question, answer and fall for each other so deeply that no one, themselves included, can understand it. So instead of trying to understand it, they accept it and live it as best they can. This is their story - a story of two young people and a love so uncompromising it will bring joy to your heart and tears to your eyes. It is the story that told the world, "Love means never having to say you're sorry."
