The moment he lays eyes on a beautiful, accomplished dancer named Daisy Bianco, his atoms rearrange themselves and he is drawn into a romance both youthfully passionate and maturely soulful.

Their love story thrives within a tight-knit circle of friends, all bound by creativity and artistry. A newcomer arrives--a brilliant but erratic dancer with an unquenchable thirst for connection. And when this disturbed friend brings a gun into the theater, the story is forever changed. Daisy is shot and left seriously injured. And Erik finds himself alone in the aisle, looking down the muzzle of a pistol and trying to stop the madness.

He succeeds, but with tremendous repercussions to his well-being and that of his loved ones.Traumatized by the experience, the lovers spiral into depression and drug use until a shocking act of betrayal destroys their relationship.

To survive, Erik must leave school and disconnect from all he loves. He buries his heartbreak and puts the past behind. Or so he believes.As he moves into adulthood, Erik comes to grips with his role in the shooting, and slowly heals the most wounded parts of his soul.

But the unresolved grief for Daisy continues to shape his dreams at night. Once those dreams were haunted by blood and gunfire. Now they are haunted by the refrain of a Gershwin song and a single question: is leaving always the end of loving?Spanning 15 years, The Man I Love explores themes of love and sexuality, trauma—physical and mental—and its long-lasting effects, the burden of unfinished business and the power of reconciliation. Through Erik’s experience we reflect on what it means to be a man, a son and a leader.

A soul mate, a partner and a lover. What it means to live the truth of who you are and what you feel. What it means to fight for what you love.Five stars. A fabulous first novel. A story written so elegantly, so beautifully, and so deliciously... Readers will be grasping this book, begging to know more, until the final page is devoured. What The Man I Love gets right is the grit of it all.

This heartfelt love story is transformed into a tale about the power of communication, the toll trauma takes on survivors, the burden of words left unsaid, and connections between people that can last a lifetime... A beautiful, yet heart-rending love story, thanks to Laqueurs emotional rawness and compelling writing.--Portland Book ReviewFive stars. Get ready to be wowed, because Suanne Laqueurs novel The Man I Love is something extraordinary. Beautifully written, it touches on topics that are deeply ingrained in our cultural psyche by this point in time and explores them with humility and sensitivity.

Erik and Daisy are so perfectly human, so sweet in their love and so flawed and hurt in their pain, that its hard not to be enthralled by them.--San Francisco Book Review
