From the Academy Award-winning writer of ON GOLDEN POND, this 30-year journey through the brutality of love begins when four students meet in college in 1970. Candy, a young dreamer, whose embittered, alcoholic mother Claire also is along for the bumpy ride, falls hard for Book, an angry young writer whose demons compete for his attention. Walt, Book’s college roommate, battles past his own confusions to become a U.S. Senator, the loud and proud Beulah, Candy’s college roomie, by his side all the way. Trenchant, recklessly funny and touching, AX OF LOVE includes more violence than most love stories, not to mention rage, redemption and even the ultimate act of love – euthanasia.
