In the tradition of Griffin and Sabine and Romeo and Juliet, Matthew Dols tells his story of a modern relationship through letters and journal entries. Utilizing vignettes of a 20 year relationship over which the two people were only face to face for 20 days, he shares a story that is both sad and romantic simultaneously. Expressing a vulnerability that is not as often expressed in modern society that is gripping and addictive.
When you think back over a relationship you have with anyone, often times the most memorable events are the great conversations. This book is a culmination of 20 years of great conversations.
