Loveland [pre-order]

This is not your usual memoir – much less a typical love story.

Loveland is about the unfolding of unmet expectations, of shattered childhood dreams, of tenderness found unexpectedly; it is the uncovering of different layers of one’s self, relationship after relationship.

The rationale for understanding the engineering of love, in its infinite nuances, comes through the framework of literature. Books shape our perceptions: their characters set parameters, their stories create paradigms, and we live by them forever.

If you’re interested in a different vision of happily-ever-after, this is the book for you.

Praise for Loveland

This memoir is one of the best I’ve come across … Intelligent, well-informed, and above all good-humored.         — Vivian Gornick, author of Fierce Attachments: A Memoir

Poignant and witty, Loveland is a gripping read.
— Emma Barry, author of Chick Magnet

Searching, unsparing, truthful, wry, direct, unstuffily erudite, and amusing.
—Pamela Regis, author of A Natural History of the Romance Novel

This is a special book. I followed along happily and emerged wiser.
—Catherine M. Roach, author of Happily Ever After: The Romance Story in Popular Culture
