How They Met and Other Stories is a collection of eighteen short stories written by David Levithan. This is the sdecond Levithan book I’ve read – well, you could say first and a half – the half being Will Grayson Will Grayosn which he co-wrote with author John Green.
This book is a collection of short love stories. There is no connection between the plots or the characters except the general theme – love. The writing spans across Levithan’s entire life as an author, icnluding stories he wrote in high school up until more recent ones. It started with Levithan writing a physics-themed love story in a boring physics class as a junior, a story he later gave to his friends who obviously demanded another one – and so he gave them just that. Over and over again.
It’s May 25th, Towel Day 2013! I read the H2G2 Series last year and I’ve been an Adams worshipper ever since! So go on, sleep under it beneath the stars which shine so redly on the desert world of Kakrafoon, wrap it round your head to ward off noxious fumes or avoid the gaze of the Ravenous Bugblatter Beast of Traal, wave your towel in emergencies as a distress signal, and of course, if you’re stuck at home studying for exams, you can always just dry yourself off with it if it still seems to be clean enough.
