About this title

Synopsis:

An anthology of love stories--both familiar and delightfully unexpected--by the greatest writers of today and yesterday.

From the Back Cover:

"A welcome perspective on a far-flung corner of the war."-Publishers Weekly"Charming, transporting . . . skillfully captured in a voice at once dazzled with innocence and composed in its maturity, Maynard's memoir is an elegant little time-traveler." -Kirkus ReviewsEveryone loves a good story, and the best are about love. It is often said that love is, in fact, the only story. Nothing better justifies this claim than the unforgettable fiction in this anthology, by a diverse group of writers who give us stories that are, at their best, a universal experience of the human soul. These are tales of young lovers, husbands and wives, dramas that include the rich and the poor, chance meetings that blossom into affairs of the heart, cheating spouses, and sexual discovery. Set against the battlefield of war, underneath the rumpled sheets of the marriage bed, in the heat of a city summer, these pieces dance around love; they nod at the reader and say love is here. Romantic, bold, and erotic, this collection articulates what we know instinctively. It will find a permanent place on every reader's bookshelf. With contributions from writers like:Graham Greene, Alice Adams, William Trevor, John Edgar Wideman, Michelle Cliff, John O'Hara, Jhumpa Lahiri, Philip Roth, Peter Cameron, Alicia Erian, James Alan McPherson, Charles Bukowski, Ann Beattie, Isaac Babel, Haruki Murakami, Anton Chekhov, Bernard Malamud, and many more. (6 x 9, 304 pages)Ben Schrank is the author of the novels Consent and Miracle Man. He has written for the Hartford Courant, the Los Angeles Times, the Financial Times, the New York Observer, Cosmopolitan, O, and Seventeen, where he was the voice behind the fictional column "Ben's Life." He lives in Brooklyn, New York, where he grew up.
