The ultimate coming of age memoir The Big Love chronicles Laurie’s journey into the gritty underworld of the New York jazz scene.
Muse, lover and confident to the legendary jazz pianist Bill Evans during his most prolific creative period, and witness to his final process of soul retrieval,
Laurie has given us a universal story that simultaneously witness’s her own awakening into love, sex, drugs, spiritual enlightenment, death and jazz, while she records the incendiary ascension of one of the worlds most beloved musicians.
Written in a style, that could be described as both “spare” and “emotionally charged” Laurie has given us a universal story, that of the witness ~ the one who watchs.
An exotic erotic memoir.

What people are saying
I simply couldn’t put your book down. Not only did I finally get the opportunity to learn about Bill the person, but I also was able to enjoy the pleasant experience of getting to know all about you throughout this exceptionally well written book. Thank you so much for letting us all experience and share your remarkable journey.
I met Bill in the past several times, on the West coast and at the University of Illinois (when I was a playing with a big band and Bill was the guest artist). My wife and I have had lunch with Nenette and Maxine, and even had Evan stay overnight with us once. Your book, however, exposed a very human side of Bill that I had always wondered about. You might be aware that I have a transcription featured in ‘How My Heart Sings’ written by the late Peter Pettinger, so that book will always have a special place in my heart. The Big Love now shares that spot.
Be sure to send a copy to Clint Eastwood. This seems to have screenplay written all over it.
I send along my very warmest regards…… take care…….

“ I’m in the middle of your book Laurie…aching. If this becomes a movie …how the music score builds and evolves through it would be a dream job for a musician. It starts out in a very staccato like fashion, which I wasn’t sure of at first, but now see where it was heading and now it’s moving in to a cross between “sturm and drang” and heady romance “.
