The Baltimore Sun

I Love You, Beth Cooper By Larry Doyle

Ecco / 304 pages / $14

Larry Doyle, a former Simpsons and Beavis and Butt-Head writer now living in Baltimore, has found success with his first novel. He tells the story of Denis Cooverman, a lovesick teenager who is captain of the debate team and hopelessly in love with Beth Cooper, the head cheerleader, who has only a vague idea who Denis is. Although the names have been changed to protect the innocent, Doyle says many of the experiences were ones he had growing up in Buffalo, N.Y.
