Sensuous, subtle, and thought-provoking, The Day You Love Me explores the common beginnings of the universal love story—and some uncommon endings.
In The Day You Love Me, you’ll travel to six places around the globe and experience six encounters, each fueled by hope and desire, each clouded by uncertainty. Whether in a Japanese village near Mt. Fuji, a small northern California town, an L.A. high school cafeteria, an art gallery in Tahiti, a bar in southern Spain, or in a Paris cafe, the meetings seem similar. The consequences are wildly different.
“… confident and assured storytelling with unforgettable characters that stay with the reader long after the last page is turned.”
“Accomplished and consistently engaging tales of romance.”
“Humphrey is especially adept at examining the hidden lives of his characters and the secrets that drive their actions.”
After graduating with a degree in English from Stanford, Jay Humphrey pursued a varied career in theater and television, law, writing and teaching. The Day You Love Me is his first collection of short stories. This book is fiction, but as Albert Camus noted, fiction is the lie through which we tell the truth. Jay lives with his wife in Northern California.
