"Like it or not, she made you the man you are. And you never got over her. You just left."
The man is Erik "Fish" Fiskare, a student of technical theatre at a Philadelphia university. At twenty-two, he is the lover and soul mate of Daisy Bianco, a beautiful and talented ballerina. His best friend is William Kaeger, Daisy's charismatic, free-spirited partner.
Erik is equally confused and fascinated by Will's bisexuality, yet he finds his bond with Will is nearly as soulful as his love for Daisy. He implicitly trusts Will with his thoughts and fears, and relies on Will to always be between Daisy and a ten-foot drop to the floor.
When Will embarks on a disastrous affair with a dancer named James Dow, it pushes both Erik's tolerance and trust. But rejection pushes James over the edge of sanity, taking Will and Daisy with him and leaving Erik in the ruins. Erik soon discovers that in the face of heartache, grief and betrayal, love is not always enough to make you stay. And sometimes, it's the only thing that can bring you back.
Spanning fifteen years and following a man's thrilling emotional journey back to the truth of himself, Laqueur's debut novel explores the dark side of devotion and the futility of running from one's past. The Man I Love is an epic tale of love and forgiveness that will linger long after the last page is turned.
So happy to end the year with this book fresh in my mind
You fall in love with Erik, rooting for him. Wanting to tell him it's going to be okay. But through the hardships he endures, he still has his humor as do the other characters along in his path. Needlessly to say, I love this book.
The healing of a wounded soul
An intimate story between friends, but focuses on the relationship of Erik and Daisy. I thought the story was well written, and very intense. The characters had great chemistry and brings thought to life's reflections, such as what it means to be who we are and how we got there. Fate isn't always set in stone. I really enjoyed the story, and it's a remarkable love story, that is unique, and unpredictable. Highly recommended.
