SRQ Book Club: I Wrote This Book Because I Love You by Tim Kreider

Arts & Culture

BY ROXANNE BAKER, BOOKSELLER AT BOOKSTORE1 SRQ DAILY FRIDAY WEEKEND EDITION FRIDAY MAR 26, 2021

I Wrote This Book Because I Love You is a thought provoking book of essays by writer and animator Tim Kreider. While the title aptly describes the theme of this book; relationships, only reading Kreider’s deft prose can hip you to his novel and self-aware attitude on the subject.

From a crazy tryst with a circus performer, to a one month fling with a professional lover, to a true case of ‘torn between two lovers’, Kreider reminds us that relationships are never flat, each involvement possessing intricacies and importance in our ever changing evolution.

The beauty of Kreider’s essays is three dimensional: first, he’s not a toxic male, truly owning his own foibles while simultaneously truly caring about the individuals with whom he became entangled. Second, his writing is both intellectual and witty making it fun to digest. And last, he charts a sensible course for reasonable relationship politics within our tumultuous current social circumstances.
