This is a winning collection from an author writing on his
favorite topic: love. Each emotionally involving story
illuminates a different kind of love: star-crossed, intense,
needy, eternal, unrequited, even comical. Wilder’s
protagonists will be instantly recognizable to his fans: men
and women who stumble into relationships that can fulfill
them or knock them out cold. Which one it will be depends,
often, on the smallest of gestures or reactions. Wilder’s
• “In Love for the First Time,” about a lover so shy and
studious that he’s a “funny duck” who has to be led by the
hand by his equally inexperienced girlfriend
• “About Being in Love,” featuring coarse but charming Buddy
Silverman, who yearns for connection but looks for it in
exactly the wrong kind of woman
• “The Woman in the Red Hat,” who shows a writer who has
only explored love in his books what the real thing feels like.
