Judyth Piazza chats with Bob Strother, Author of Love Among the Greeks

By Judyth Piazza CEO (Editor)

What is love anyway? Webster`s defines it as an affection based on personal ties or s*xual desires. In the early 1960s "before the era of free love " "there was still plenty to be had, if you were willing to pay the price. Johnny Chase enters college in 1962, joins the Kappa Sigma frater­nity, and replaces his high school girlfriend with sorority beauty Randy Roberts. Together they burn like a rocket through a torrid six-month love affair. Complicating matters are Kappa Sigma rush girl Rivers Lloyd "Johnny`s friend, social advisor and maybe something else "and his co-worker Millie, whose unusual mix of practical ad-vice and hands-on therapy provide a much-needed distraction.

So, is it love, or just another Greek tragedy? Follow the sometimes amoral but always romantic Johnny Chase on an odyssey of self-dis­covery through the hallowed halls of Greek society.
