Modern Love
Modern Love: 50 True and Extraordinary Tales of Desire, Deceit, and Devotion | Daniel Jones
9 posts | 5 read | 7 to read
50 Irresistible True Accounts of Love in the Twenty-first Century. A young woman wryly describes a relationship that races from start to finish almost entirely via text messages. A Casanova is jilted after an idyllic three weeks and learns the hard way that the woman is, well, just not that into him. An overweight woman in a sexless marriage wrestles with the rules of desire. A young man recounts the high-wire act of sharing the woman he loves with both her husband and another boyfriend. A female sergeant in the Missouri National Guard, fresh from Iraq, tells what she is not supposed to tell about the woman she is not allowed to love. These are just a few of the people whose stories are included in Modern Love, a collection of the fifty most revealing, funny, stirring essays from the New York Timess popular Modern Love column. Editor Daniel Jones has arranged these tales to capture the ebb and flow of relationships, from seeking love and tying the knot to having children and finding love that endures. (Cynics and melancholics can skip right to the section on splitting up.) Taken together, these essays show through a modern lens how love drives, haunts, and enriches us. For anyone whos loved, lost, stalked an ex, or made a lasting connection, and for the voyeur in all of us, Modern Love is the perfect match. From the Trade Paperback edition.

November 25, 2022 I started this book on November 21, 2022 but wanted to read more than one chapter to see how I like it. Essentially it is a collection of short stories (OR complilation of short stories) that were written at different times about love. WHAT is your defintion of love?? Comment please

October 5, 2022 Since I finished my other book, now it is time to read a new one. Should I read the one about true love stories OR a memoir written by Qian Julie Wang? Please pick and write down your vote in the comments.

I couldn‘t help but snatch up this collection of NYT columns on which the amazon prime series is based. It‘s an updated collection with several new entries as recent as 2018.

This book covers all kinds of love, romantic love, first love, unrequited love, parental love, and marital love of the long-lasting and heart-breaking varieties. This collection shows our hearts are capable of great fullness, and we all share the ferocity of love. 4⭐️

I picked this up as a kindle deal today. 👍🏻📚 I keep meaning to watch the Amazon Prime series but haven‘t. At least the tv tie in cover isn‘t terrible!!

MicheleinPhilly I‘ve only watched the first 2 episodes but both made me SOB like a baby. It‘s so good. 3y
Megabooks @MicheleinPhilly definitely count me in!! 😭😭💙💙 3y
MicheleinPhilly I watched the first episode on my own and then re-watched it with my wife. She was like “Why are you crying? Haven‘t you already seen this?” 😂 3y
Megabooks @MicheleinPhilly awwww!! No wonder we‘re friends. If something makes me cry once, it will generally make me cry at least the next 5 times, if not forevermore. 😭 3y

Love, at its best, is more of a wheelbarrow than a rose: gritty and messy but also durable. Yet still hard to put into words 💔❤️
