Love Comets is a compelling story of intense, tempestuous and raw teenage passions.

Set mainly in a Manchester suburb in the late 1960s, it follows the fluctuating fortunes of a group of sex-starved boys, friends from grammar school, who are desperate to lose their virginity before going to university.

Central to the novel is Joe’s relationship with Katie. Captivated by her radiant beauty, vivaciousness and sharp wit, his shyness recedes as their love blossoms. Overcoming parental restrictions and painful emotional crises, they engage joyously in tender sexual intimacies as their romance flourishes.

But, after a summer of carefree loving, ominous shadows threaten their idyllic love affair as they depart to different universities. Will their love for each other survive separation? When attractive and sexually confident university friends compete for their affections, how will they react? Will Joe and Katie still be together after an emotionally turbulent term? And when the group of friends meet up again on New Year’s Eve and compare their sexual experiences, will their feisty girlfriends have proved a match for them all?

Love Comets vividly portrays the excitement and vulnerability of teenage lovers as the sexual revolution of the 1960s gathers pace. Full of unexpected twists and turns, dramatic revelations, humorous exchanges and true-to-life sexual discoveries, Love Comets will appeal strongly to teenagers exploring their first loving relationships and also older readers recalling fondly their first loves.

Richard Jerome is a proud Mancunian, surviving exile in Yorkshire as his wonderful wife and sons were born there. He is grateful to the generations of witty and lively teenagers who amused, inspired and kept him young throughout his career in secondary, further and higher education as a teacher, senior manager and inspector. He maintains though that his best job was as a student labouring at his local sewage treatment plant where he learned far more about life than he did at university. He enjoys watching professional football, the theatre, bird-watching, modern and contemporary art, and litter-picking.
