Robert Fulghum's previous books, All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten, It Was on Fire When I Lay Down on It, Uh-Oh, Maybe (Maybe Not), and From Beginning to End have struck a chord with readers everywhere, making him one of the bestselling authors of our time. There are currently more than 14 million copies of these books in print in 27 languages and 93 countries.
In his third book, Uh-Oh, he shared some short and somewhat unconventional love stories from his own experiences and casually suggested that if readers had their own tales to tell, he would love to hear them. To his surprise his mailbox was soon stuffed with thousands of real-life love stories sent to him by his devoted fans. True Love is the result of the incredible response he received. These stories, especially chosen by Fulghum to reflect the many faces of love, are amusing, sentimental, and sometimes gritty, and bound to touch the hearts of all.
There's the story of a woman who marries her mother's high school flame, a man who learns that "old love" and new pajamas are a dangerous mix, a man who miraculously reunites with his first love (after 20 years of separation) on an L.A. freeway, a husband's love for his wife after her disabling stroke, a 14-year-old's philosophy of looking for love on the boardwalk, and a smile shared at a stoplight. With True Love, Robert Fulghum proves that anything and everything is possible in love. He has once again found a way to speak to the heart and soul of his readers.

Just in time for Valentine's Day comes the perennially best-selling Fulghum's latest on love. In Uh-Oh (1991), he shared love stories from his own life. Now, per his request, readers have sent him their own brushes with love, and to gather more fodder, he sat in Seattle coffee shops with a sign that said, "Tell me a short love story, and I will buy you coffee and make you famous." Sounds like a pretty easy way to "write" a book, but Fulghum does provide commentary here and there and some of his own material, including a touching little tale about a widow in her seventies who re-meets her true love at her high-school reunion and then wanders around Victoria's Secret trying to figure out how to translate her feelings into appropriate lingerie. Some of the anecdotes are so sweet they'll make your teeth ache faster than Valentine chocolates. Librarians may want to warn readers not to gobble this down in one sitting. Ilene Cooper
