Rarely do we find a "literary love story," the genre itself seems to have faded into classics. For those of us who have lost hope of their revitalization, look no further than Tom McNeal's "To Be Sung Underwater." His second novel delivers with intellectually capable characters that do not merely fall in love, but question love itself in all its manifestations.

Judith and Willy had one summer together. Yet their languid days spent swimming in secret lakes and the cool nights picnicking under the stars still hang suspended in the backdrop of Judy's life years later. As for Willy, those few days with Judith have proved to be the piéce de résistance of his life. Circumstance and destiny, although often at odds, work together to make a mess of their plans, condemning them to separate fates.
