9780140056037: Endless Love

One of the most celebrated novels of its time, Endless Love remains perhaps the most powerful novel ever written about young love. Riveting, compulsively readable, and ferociously sexual, Endless Love tells the story of David Axelrod and his overwhelming love for Jade Butterfield.

David's and Jade's lives are consumed with each other; their rapport, their desire, their sexuality take them further than they understand. And when Jade's father suddenly banishes David from the house, he fantasizes the forgiveness his rescue of the family will bring and he sets a "perfectly safe" fire to their house. What unfolds is a nightmare, a dark world in which David's love is a crime and a disease, a world of anonymous phone calls, crazy letters, and new fears -- and the inevitable and punishing pursuit of the one thing that remains most real to him: his endless love for Jade and her family.

Product Description:

"Scott Spencer writes about love's tenacity with passionate intensity....From his remarkable opening sentence he had me in thrall."
--Newsweek

First published three decades ago, and hailed as "one of the best books of the year" by the New York Times, here is the classic novel that first established Scott Spencer as "the contemporary American master of the love story"(Publishers Weekly). With more than 2,000,000 copies sold worldwide and translated into more than 20 languages, Spencer's Endless Love is a breathtaking story of teenage passion and obsession. The Washington Post called this unforgettable reading experience, "akin to the legendary thrill of riding a roller-coaster." Endless Love is eternal--and as moving and satisfying as ever before.
