Genius of Love is a contemporary urban love story set in Tacoma, Washington. Noah Neptune is thirty-seven years old and remarkably intelligent—a genius, really—but when it comes to love and relationships he’s “a stupid, stupid man”. He’s got his small circle of friends, a mental illness and a case manager. Noah struggles with the day to day challenges of bipolar disorder, platonic friendships with the opposite sex, a deteriorating relationship with his best male friend, and developing feelings of love and lust for his best friend Christine. He documents all of his struggles on his blog, telling all—or at least most—and trying, in block paragraphs, to figure out who he is and what he wants. Genius of Love is a serio-comic look at modern urban love and relationships where “no names will be changed to protect the innocent because none of us are innocent.”
