The Last Romantics by Tara Conklin

“The greatest works of poetry are the stories we tell about ourselves.

When the renowned poet Fiona Skinner is asked about the inspiration behind her iconic work, The Love Poem, she tells her audience a story about her family and a betrayal that reverberates through time.

It begins in a big yellow house, with a funeral, an iron poker, and a brief variation forever known as the Pause: a free and feral summer in a middle-class Connecticut town. Caught between the predictable life they once led and an uncertain future that stretches before them, the Skinner siblings—fierce Renee, sensitive Caroline, golden-boy Joe and watchful Fiona—emerge from the Pause staunchly loyal and deeply connected.  Two decades later, the siblings find themselves once again confronted with a family crisis that tests the strength of these bonds and forces them to question the life choices they’ve made and to ask what, exactly, they are willing to do for love. 

A sweeping yet intimate epic about one American family, The Last Romantics is an unforgettable exploration of the ties that bind us together, the responsibilities we embrace and the duties we resent, and how we can lose—and sometimes rescue—the ones we love. A novel that pierces the heart and lingers in the mind, it is also a beautiful meditation on the power of stories—how they guide us through difficult times, help us understand the past, and point the way toward our future.

Like many songs where it didn't have access to or didn't pay for the master track, Activision had its team of talented studio musicians re-record the song for inclusion in the game. The Romantics sued because the new version of the band's song sounded too close to the original--which was the point all along, really, but this way The Romantics get more money. The whole thing smelled bad, and on Monday a federal judge denied the request to stop sales of the game. According to the announcement, the judge "indicated that to the extent there were any copyright issues, Activision did exactly what the company was supposed to do in developing the product. It's been pointed out that this sort of sound-alike recording is protected under law, and is, in fact, encouraged. The law states that the original copyrights of a song "do not extend to the making or duplication of another sound recording that consists entirely of an independent fixation of other sounds, even though such sounds imitate or simulate those in the copyrighted sound recording.
