>This looks like another good one to try: Digital: A Love Story, by Christine Love (serendipitous name! Or a playful pseudonym?). I love the idea of a love story told in 1988 online interactions — it reminds of of epistolary novels like de Laclos’s Les Liaisons Dangereuses. I love that the reader has to work a little harder to decode what is happening. It’s a wonderful way to treat a romance because it makes it feel more organic and more embedded in actual actions. Can’t wait to try it.
Also, I’m curious to track down Christine Love. Seems that she’s in Toronto. Here’s an interview with her.
