Here David shows Finny and Earl when they meet as kids (above), and then again in bed together years later (below). There's something very moving to me about the way Finny and Earl's relationship develops from young love into something more mature, but also more weathered and difficult. One of the things I wanted to capture in the book was the way Finny and Earl continually revise themselves and their relationship as they move together and apart. I'm interested in the way time changes people.
