TIME Presents the 12 All-Time Great Summer Reads

Love Story, Erich Segal (1970) After leaving Harvard with a PhD in Comparative Literature, Segal published this fictional account of a Harvard-Radcliffe romance.

Both the novel and the film became cult classics, known for their sappy tagline “Love means never having to say you’re sorry.” Love Story was published in February 1970, and reached #1 on the New York Times’ Best Sellers list in May. Success meant Segal never had to say he was sorry.

H & S acquire works of Erich Segal

Hodder & Stoughton is delighted to announce a fresh publication for all of Erich Segal’s novels.

Hodder will launch the programme with a new edition of Love Story in February 2013 for Valentine’s Day, with an online social media campaign centring on the legacy of that book and introducing it to the millions of readers who will know its iconography ‘Love means never having to say you’re sorry’ without knowing its source. All the books will be packaged to establish the classic credentials of each novel, and publish simultaneously as B-format paperback and digital originals.

Carolyn Mays of Hodder said, ‘I am happy to admit having wept over Love Story and I am delighted to be playing a part in bringing it and Erich Segal’s wonderful other novels to a new audience around the world who will enjoy them every bit as much as I have.’
