I was beyond excited when I heard about the book Us: Americans Talk About Love, edited by John Bowe. A book about people, coming from all walks of life, talking about love. Filled with more than 40 love stories told by people from all over the country, people just like us. Totally my cup of tea.
These interviews are surprising, and so painfully honest. I am sorry I missed reviewing this before Valentines Day, it would have been the perfect gift. As Bowe goes through the interviews, we see that love is everywhere. Love is in preschool, and decades older. Love is great, and terrible; beautiful and disappointing. There is no way someone can not relate to one of these stories.
This collection is smart, and very very sweet.
