HELP!!!!!!!
I've been trying to remember the name of a book I read. It's Alternative Lifestyle, about two guys, one black, one white, who are baseball players. One is closeted (black), the other is married (white).

I thought it was called "Something Like Love", or "Love, or Something Like It"... but nothing shows up on Amazon.

HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Is it "The Dreyfus Affair" by Peter Lefcourt? Sounds familiar?

Maybe... Wait! The baseball one is the "Dreyfuss Affair".

The other was about two guys, who were friends in HS, and drifted apart. Always in love (at least, one of them knew it). One ended up realizing it, and chased down the other (the athlete).

Or something like that!! LOL!

Book has a yellow cover, writing in a black script, large... and I think some kind of small graphic, maybe a heart? or a baseball? Hm...

I could have sworn it was "Life, or Something LIke it", but that's a movie with Angelina Jolie (another top fave)... damn, brain is a-mooshing...

Yup, it's on my bookshelf right next to The Dreyfuss Affair.

But... Wasn't that the book that was making the reading rounds? And didn't *you* start the chain? Does that mean it never came back to you?

I started the chain, sent it to... you, right? And yep, it never came back. I don't even know how far it got.

I've been wracking my brains trying to think who I sent it to. I think I sent it to msamarat after that, but I could have it backwards and maybe she sent it to me. Grr, I don't remember at all. How very sad that it never made its way back. So much for faith in humanity, huh?

*hugs*

Interesting... I clicked on the username, because I was going to ask about the book... and it comes up as "not a registered name". But it isn't lined through...

Weird.

That's because I'm a loser and spelled it wrong. It's msaramat. I am pretty sure she was on the book list -- I just hope my memory isn't playing tricks on me.

I e-mailed her. We'll see what happens!
