Have you ever Googled an ex? Have you ever wondered what happened to the first, the truest and/or the greatest love of your life? Have you ever wanted to sit down with that person and ask: How often, if ever, do you think of me (and in what context)? Do you have any regrets? What do you think would have happened if we ended up together? Were we soul mates? If so, how could you move on to someone else so quickly, so easily and painlessly with someone else? Have you ever considered how that person would respond if and when you did contact (let's say) her today? With dismissive laughter? A restraining order? Tears of joy?Lee Robert Schreiber has not been with the purported love of his life since they broke up 25 years ago (primarily because he could not commit to marriage). He's not precisely sure how encountering her after all this time will bring him closer to, well, closure, but he's tried everything else: long-term relationships; one-night stands; friends of friends; friends of relatives; relatives of friends; friends; relatives; therapy; analysis; recreational medication; professional medication; how-to seminars; self-help literature. And none of it, none of them has brought him close to the depths of affection and intimacy that he felt for this one young girl way back when. Pathetic or Romantic? You make the call. Schreiber made the call (actually he emailed her). This is his (and her) poignant, often hilarious and absolutely true story.… (mere)

Schreiber writes THE ONE THAT GOT AWAY in real time, so the story unfolds to him as it unfolds to us. He takes us through every major and minor emotional thought pattern that enters his head, while a Greek chorus of friends put in their two cents’ worth along the way. It’s classic single-person, angst-ridden, self-centered stuff, but luckily Schreiber knows this and handles the story with a good dose of humor. The big themes are tackled here—questions of fate, love, and whether the world holds only one soul mate per person—and ultimately Schreiber deals with them honestly and poignantly. He might even make you laugh out loud from time to time. He’s a good writer.

Schreiber has dared go where no man (in his right mind) has gone: to his romantic past. Why? To ask his now-married first love the questions most of us are content to leave unanswered. The result is a detailed-rich account of love and loss that is never (well, rarely) sentimental, often hilarious, and always smart. Schreiber’s a guy’s guy who has the balls (and the chops) to write what we have all thought and felt, but have been reluctant to say out loud. He captures what it feels like to grow up, lose, and win (in sports, poker, and in relationships), relate to our fathers, and sweat the big and small stuff. He does it with self-deprecating humor, and such poetic precision, that it’s a pleasure to completely kick back, relax, laugh, think, and totally relate.
