How Much the Heart Can Hold: Seven Stories on Love

book | Fiction | 2016
World → (Ed. Emma Herdman)

Love is not a singular concept.

In this collection, seven award-winning authors explore seven concepts of love: from Philautia, self-love, to Agape, love for humanity; and from Storge, a natural affection for family, to Mania, a frenzied, obsessive love.

Seven authors; seven short stories; seven flashes of love.

Reviews

Together they assert that love is more heart-breaking and transforming than the word necessarily conveys. 

Observer

All seven [stories] score an outright win in the battle to make the ethereal real


Country Life

With prose that is occasionally astonishing, these stories muddy the waters of the literature on love in the best possible way.
