"The Love of My Life" by T.C. Boyle

The New Yorker's archived stories, some of them, are temporarily free, so let's dig in, shall we?

T.C. Boyle's "The Love of My Life" (published in March of 2000) has all the makings of a tragic love story. It's modern day Shakespeare. That is to say, the characters are doomed from the get-go--in this case, for being educated kids in an overpopulated world. A short, fascinating read about the stupidity of young love, to make me wonder: Is there an age when one is old enough for true love and all the messy complications it entails?
