What we're about

Love, after all, is only a superior kind of curiosity, an appetite for the unknown that makes you bare your breast and plunge headlong into the storm.
- Gustave Flaubert

A few years back, Penguin published a collection of works called Great Loves. Through writers such as Anaïs Nin, James Baldwin, Anton Chekhov and Sigmund Freud, we'll explore the colors of love including seduction, trust, jealousy and loss, and hopefully share our own ideas and experiences in love.

We have finally completed the original Penguin list, so please feel free to send me a message with any relevant books you'd like to read together!
