"Scott Spencer writes about love's tenacity with passionate intensity....From his remarkable opening sentence he had me in thrall."

Back cover copy

The classic novel that has been translated into over twenty languages and has sold more than two million copies worldwide

One of the most celebrated novels of its time, Endless Love remains perhaps the most powerful book ever written about young love. Riveting, compulsively readable, and ferociously sexual, Endless Love tells the story of David Axelrod and his overwhelming love for Jade Butterfield.

David and Jade are consumed with each other: their rapport, their desire, their sexuality, take them further than they understand. And when Jade's father banishes David from the home, he fantasizes the forgiveness his rescue of the family will bring, and he sets a "perfectly safe" fire to their house. What unfolds is a nightmare, a dark world in which David's love is a crime and a disease, a world of anonymous phone calls, crazy letters, and new fears--and the inevitable and punishing pursuit of the one thing that remains most real to him: his endless love for Jade and her family.

Published in 1979 and hailed as "one of the best books of the year" by the New York Times, Endless Love is the novel that first established Scott Spencer as "the contemporary American master of the love story" (Publishers Weekly).

Our customer reviews

Sincere and intense, the book is hard to put down. The writing won me over from the start - the narrative seems to flow out of its own free will, but to me every sentence is a pinnacle in expression, conveying an impossible amount of setting, character, back-story and emotion. It’s the ultimate show-don’t-tell’! I have collected some of my favorite bits in a post on my blog: http://prettydoesome.wordpress.com/2014/06/16/memorable-endless-love/show more
