LOVE: A STORY by Bill Smoot

The narrative of the LOVE: A STORY is laced with philosophic musings on the nature of love, life, and story telling. The narration suggests an American counterpart to the novels of Milan Kundera for its interweaving of fiction, philosophy, and memoir.  The dominant theme is that life is a story, and that living is story telling. The last part suggest that the book that Michael, the main character, begins to write is the book the reader is reading, and the reader is left to wonder whether the action is in fact “real” or just “story.”
