Jody Lisberger's provocatively titled story collection will make readers wonder just how and when they should 'remember love.' As trauma, as what persists, as what confines, as what liberates, as what disappoints, as what we live for? And what shapes do our loves assume in all their infinite variety? Not only the human content but the aesthetic of these accomplished stories makes them worthy of profound attention. --Sena Jeter Naslund, Editor Fleur-de-Lis Press

Review:

These stories get a grip on you and don't let you go. You may be bruised, but you'll want to read more. Lisberger's imagination is dark and penetrating, fiercely balanced. Her characters often have been beaten down but refuse to give up the things that make them, finally, who they really are: They will not let the bastards grind them down, to paraphrase one of these stories. But these people are not merely survivors. Their quiet, grim, and private triumphs are what Lisberger understands and celebrates. --Brad Watson, author of The Heaven of Mercury

Like the best of Anne Tyler, Jody Lisberger's stories mine the complicated private truths of seemingly comfortable American families with compassion, insight, and, above all, fearless honesty. Husbands and wives, parents and children, friends and lovers: they are all there in these pages, rendered with precision and loving care. Graceful and seductive, spare in their telling yet unstintingly powerful in their impact, these stories will stay with you long after you've turned the last page. --Joan Leegant, author of An Hour in Paradise

Jody Lisberger gives us love stories for grown-ups--sharply written tales that reveal the emotional trapdoors, unexpected complexities, humor, cruelty, and resiliency of mature love. Remember Love is an artful, uncompromising, and moving exploration of human desire. --K. L. Cook, author of The Girl from Charnelle
