9780395860014: Love: Enter

A romantic, computer-age love story set in Paris and New Orleans. Young Dan Shoenfeld, spending a year abroad after college, falls in love with Bou and Margot, two women who happen to be in love with each other. Winner of the Los Angeles Times Book Prize for First Fiction, Paul Kafka's brilliant first novel is now available in paperback. Patricia Hampl writes, "Paul Kafka's enchanting novel brings a new dimension to the epistolary romance and a fresh face to the American in Paris. The city gleams and winks, seduces and betrays as if for the first time in this deftly written love story. It's a beauty-a crazy, unexpected, entirely winning tale: Paris love remembered by a young doctor on the milky computer screen of a New Orleans maternity ward at night. When Paul Kafka hits the Enter key to "save to memory," the story gets sent straight to the heart."

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

I followed Beck to the landing where you, Bou, towered behind Margot. Beck picked Margot up and whirled her around, then set her down and kissed her with loud smacking noises, as if she were his six-year-old neice. I stood in front of you, Bou, and my soul ran at a fast clip up to my eyes and leapt in a shallow, long-jump arc across the air into your eyes and was gone... Margot was greeting me now, her hands under my elbows, her cheek against mine. A loose, lost-and-found arrow surged up and through me. I kissed Margot with closed eyes, and didn't need to see her because I already knew the high Eskimo curve of her cheeks cresting above me, the blue of her eyes, the trill of her tong speaking, the spiral fall of her hair, the weight of her breasts not in my hands. I listened for my heart and found it plashing away inside her, and I realized I'd lost that, too. And so it was there on the landing during that first long moment that I learned I loved you and Margot, not indistinguishably but inseparably, and always.

Book Description HOUGHTON MIFFLIN, United States, 1998. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Remember what it was like to fall in love - wildly, hopelessly in love - for the first time? Paul Kafka s gloriously romantic debut novel recaptures love s first days in a sparkling, bittersweet tale of awakening and longing. Paris sets the scene for the emotional entanglements of four young Americans. Dan and Beck, just out of college, share a ramshackle garret and the friendship of Margot and Bou, two women who happen to be in love with each other. For a brief, enchanted time, the foursome revel in the bohemian splendor of the City of Light. But when loyalties shift, as they inevitably do, the friends discover the heartbreaking boundaries of intimacy. Five years later, Dan is finishing medical school in New Orleans and delivering babies at a local hospital. But memories of Paris haunt him. Where are they now - outrageous Beck, wise, steadfast Margot, impulsive, irresistible Bou? Do they think of him, and of each other? In the midnight minutes between births, Dan uses the maternity ward s computer to write long letters to his faraway friends, conjuring up the rapture of their early days together, when they were just entering the realm of love. Stylish, fresh, filled with charmingly offbeat characters and saturated with Parisian sunlight LOVE Enter is an epistolary romance for the modern age. Bookseller Inventory # APC9780395860014
