The Love Book? Love it. For reals.

We recently had the chance to read The Love Book by Ken Wohlrob who we will be reading with on September 28th at Freebird Books in Brooklyn and we wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed it. There are just five not so short, short stories in this unbelievably rich collection, and while love may be the operative word here, we're not sure anyone would call them love stories, per se. Now that said, are these stories all about how love gets warped, lost, manipulated, sublimated, twisted, fetishized, tainted and occasionally celebrated? Yes, and more. And so do we think you should you read this collection? Yes, again, for sure, so, go ahead, please read The Love Book, it just might change your life.

Great summation of a great book. Wish I could be there to throw peanuts.
