From the Publisher
Editors Note From the editor of the New York Times' popular "Modern Love" column, the story of love from beginning to end (or not).Love. We want it. We need it. We pay it homage with songs and poems and great works of art. And when we lose it, there's no pain as intense or excruciating. For centuries we've been trying to figure it out, control it, or just get better at it. As the editor of a column about love for the New York Times, Daniel Jones reads thousands of stories about people's intimate relationships?the ones that soar, crash, or hum along, from the bizarre to the supposedly ?normal.? It's possible that he's read more true love stories than anyone on earth. In Love Illuminated, he teases apart this mystifying emotion that thrills, crushes, and sustains.Drawing from the 50,000 stories that have crossed his desk over the past decade, Jones explores ten aspects of love?pursuit, destiny, vulnerability, connection, trust, practicality, monotony, infidelity, loyalty, and wisdom?and creates a lively, funny and enlightening journey through this universal human experience that jangles the head and stirs the heart.
Editors Note 1 Drawing from more than 50,000 stories that have crossed his desk over the past decade, the editor of the "Modern Love" column for the New York Times, exploring the 10 aspects of love, reveals its many contradictions and complexities. 75,000 first printing.
