About the Author

Zack Love graduated from Harvard College, where his studies focused mostly on literature, psychology, philosophy, and film. After college, Zack moved to New York City where he held a variety of corporate jobs while enjoying tech ventures, creative writing, NY Nightlife, and anything else that could provide a good getaway from the Manhattan work grind.

One of Zack's favorite escapes is exploring foreign places and cultures; Zack has traveled to about 60 countries for business and/or pleasure. He has lived and worked in Asia, Europe, and Latin America, and speaks Spanish, French, and German (and has been known to fake Italian and Portuguese in order to flirt or get directions).

In 2013, Zack decided to publish his first of several unpublished works: “Sex in the Title - a Comedy about Dating, Sex, and Romance in NYC (back when phones weren't so smart).” After publishing Sex in the Title, Zack developed the SQ Calculator ( a web and Facebook application that uses “crowd-sourcing” to measure how sexy someone is. Zack is now a full-time writer and focused on releasing the rest of his unpublished works, and maybe even authoring the unwritten stories that have been brewing in his brain for far too long.

I often wonder what is going through peoples minds and so this short story amused me to no end! It was interesting seeing what conclusions another person's thought process would lead them to in this scenario and how much they would differ from mine. Having a small insight into a male's mind was very enlightening and very funny too! Being its a short story there isn't really much to comment on other than that it is well written, Zack is no doubt a talented writer and I can honestly say I would and have recommended his work to many readers and will continue to do so until they give in and one-click!!!

Zack Love’s “City Solipsism” is a quick and interesting read. Solipsism is the philosophical idea that the only thing that is known is that our mind exists, and I think the title is perfect for the piece. If you’ve ever people watched, this story will ring true for you. We never truly know what others are really thinking and what other people’s experiences are.

Reviewed for Nerd Alert Book Love This story is incredibly well written. I found it quite intriguing to be taken through a man's thoughts about another passenger as he travels the subway to work one morning. To say the ending surprised me would be an understatement. I think I may have given quite the unladylike snort. Well done Zack!

Riding a NYC subway will never be the same! Beautifully written, City Solipsism allows the reader to get a glimpse into the mind of a man, Jack, who is taking his normal, boring commute into his NYC job. Boring until he spots an attractive woman who just so happens to board the same subway car as Jack and shares the same metal pole with him. Intrigued by this beauty, Jack shares with us his thoughts, memories, hope and desires... all invoked by this mysterious, beautiful stranger. Oh and the ending? Won't spoil it for you but if you've read "Sex In The Title" by Zack, then you will know that it is DEFINITELY Zack Love...True To Form!
