About this title:

Synopsis: CRUSH brings together stories of heartbreak, humiliation, and hilarity from a roster of popular luminaries, including James Franco, Carrie Fisher, Stephen King, Roxane Gay, Jodi Picoult, Emily Gould, and Hanna Rosin, who share intimate memories of that first intense taste of love. Here are funny, whimsical, sometimes cringe-worthy tales of falling head over heels for River Phoenix, Mary Tyler Moore, Howard Cosell, Jared Leto, and a host of other pop culture icons. Swoon-worthy and unforgettable, the essays in CRUSH will leave you laughing, make you cry, and keep you enthralled -- just like your first celebrity crush.

From the Back Cover:

A star-studded collection of original essays that illuminates the lasting power of desire and longing, and celebrates our initiation into the agony and ecstasy that is our first celebrity crush

You never forget your first crush . . .

CRUSH brings together stories of heartbreak, humiliation, and hilarity from a roster of popular luminaries. Whether it manifests in writing vaguely inappropriate fan letters, obsessively chronicling their wardrobe choices, buying a Star Map in order to drive by their house, or simply purchasing every magazine with their face on the cover, we’ve all had a one-sided love affair with a person too famous to know we exist. In some ways more powerful than the up-close, in-person grade-school crush, the celebrity crush is as much defined by its mystery and allure as by its fervor and ferocity.

Swoon-worthy and unforgettable, the essays in CRUSH are poignant and compulsively readable, and each begs the question: Who is your celebrity crush?
