Love Story By Erich Segal
Before writing a "Love story", Erich Segal published books on the Greek tragedian Euripides and the comic Roman playwright Plautus. He
was born in Brooklyn, N.Y and got his master's degree in classics in 1959 from Harvard. He taught Greek and Roman literature at Yale
University and dabbled in screenplays for a number of years before the Love story came about as a staggering commercial success. He was
also an honorary fellow of Wolfson College at Oxford University.
Originally a screenplay about start crossed love, E
rich Segal's "Love Story" is probably one of the best love stories ever told. A romantic
novel that is sure to move you, it is about working-class Italian girl from Radcliffe and a Harvard boy from an old family. It chronicled the
fate of, the highborn Oliver Barrett IV and the working-class Jennifer Cavilleri, who meet at Harvard, fall in love and, despite the arduous
objections of Oliver's family, get married. They are happy with each other, but life becomes cruel when Jenny is diagnosed with leukemia.
With just a few days to live, the novel speaks about the emotional pain they both go through. Funny and flip, sad and poignant, it reveals
the love that has no language but a lot of feelings. "Love Story" by Erich Segal is bound to move the compassion of love in you and to linger
in your heart now and forever. It had the largest print order in the publishing history at the time. The novel spent more than a year on the
New York Times hardcover best-seller list selling over 21 million copies in 33 languages.
Although "Love Story" was first published in 1970, the book is still found everywhere even today, in every bookshop in the best-sellers
racks, and almost on every roadside book shop in nearly every Indian city. This book was made into a successful film that starred Ali
MacGraw and Ryan O'Neal and became a huge hit, and was in production much before it was reworked as a novel.
