A novel about the trials of coaching in a basketball-obsessed state and what happens to one young man desperate to find a wife.


"In his novel The Coach’s Wife, William Torgerson has written one of the best books about basketball and coaching I’ve ever read. He’s also written a love story so complicated and wonderful it will have book clubs talking about it for many years."
-Pat Conroy

Love on the Big Screen is the story of Zuke, a college freshman whose understanding of love has been shaped by late-eighties romantic comedies, and who attends a school so strict it’s against the rules to go to the movies. Zuke and his buddies, separated from the women on campus and forced to entertain themselves, form a club called the Brothers in Pursuit, which holds weekly meetings during which all the members dress in matching and embroidered boxer shorts, stand at attention to Cyndi Lauper’s “True Colors,” and report back to one another on their objectives: God, knowledge, compassion, and women.

Love on the Big Screen is a novel of friendship, the dangers of romanticized love, the complexities of faith and real life, and what happens to one young man as he discovers that life is nothing like the movies he loves.
