Shoved to the back of the bottom shelf, forgotten, but recently unearthed, is a copy of Almost Like Being in Love by Steve Kluger, an epistolary novel of two unlikely lovers. They were high school buddies but even back then they weren’t speaking to each other. Travis, the nerd and musical fiend who hitchhiked three hundred miles to buy a rare album, would not speak a word to alpha-jock Craig McKenna because he was afraid. This book is cute, and laugh-out-loud funny. Told in narrative, letters, checklists and other forms of correspondence, the book is just timely for the weekend. I cannot wait to find out how the first love will reunite after twenty years. The receipt reveals that I made this purchase in 2006 at Borders, which no longer exists!
