Description
Mickey Pearlman invites established writers and rising stars to think about that eternally evocative subject: love. What is this thing called love? The answer that emerges from these gifted writers is a collection of original memoirs about: a Broadway songwriting grandmother, the adoption of a biracial daughter, the love of a gay man for his aging grandmother, a Chinese father's love letters to the writer's mother, a traumatic but transformative childbirth experience, a love affair with one's wife in Paris and the familiar sibling rivalry between a toddler and her newborn sister. Like fresh rain falling on time-worn Parisian streets, the writers -- Peter Cameron, Ron Carlson, Angela Davis-Gardner, Tim Gautreaux, Myra Goldberg, Brian Hall, Linda Hogan, Caroline Leavitt, Margot Livesey, Elizabeth McCracken, Dennis McFarland, Joyce Carol Oates, Larry O'Connor, Carolyn See, Shawn Wong, Katharine Weber, Alexs D. Pate -- play a contemporary riff on an age-old song.
