About Love

A selection of stories, poems, films and songs exploring the joy and sadness of love. With films to curl up and watch with a loved one, or books to mend a broken heart…

by Richard Yates
The American dream will always have its casualties. Young, newly married and intensely ambitious, Michael Davenport tries to make a living as a writer, while knowing his adoring wife, Lucy, has an untapped private fortune. She in turn is never quite certain of what is expected of her. All she knows is that everyone else seems, somehow, happier.

by James Dawson
A funny and moving love story about friends, first loves and self-discovery. Toria Bland arrives at her new school in a crazy whirl of worry, exam pressure and anxiety over fitting in. She soon finds her place with the 'alternative' kids and meeting the funny and foul-mouthed Polly - the coolest girl Toria has ever seen! Love and friendship have a funny way of going round in circles.

The eighth album by Scottish group Belle & Sebastian, and first for four years, features a new batch of classic indie-pop songs. The title track which features vocals from Oscar-nominated actress Carey Mulligan. Norah Jones is featured on the track 'Little Lou, Ugly Jack, Prophet John'.

by Carol Ann Duffy
Whether writing of longing or seduction, of passion, adultery, or simple, everyday acts of love, Carol Ann Duffy perfectly captures the truth of each experience. Her poetry speaks of tangled, heated passion; of erotic love; love that is fierce and hungry or unrequited; and of the end of love. Always imaginative, heartfelt and direct.

by Aleksandr Sergeevich Pushkin
When Aleksandr Pushkin published his classic romantic novel of thwarted love and conflicting loyalties in 1833, readers found the entire work composed in a unique sonnet form with an intricate rhythmic and rhyming structure. In the end, the power of Pushkin's masterpiece lies in its fast-paced and wonderfully balanced storyline and in the interplay between Onegin and Tatiana.

After 39 years together, Ben and George, find themselves living separately after George loses his teaching job and they can no longer afford their Manhattan apartment. Ben moves in with family but soon feels he is outstaying his welcome, while George crashes on the sofa of a much younger, party-loving couple. They have trouble adapting to life without the other being nearby at all times.

by G. Willow Wilson and Takeshi Miyazawa
Love is in the air in Jersey City as Valentine's Day arrives. Kamala Khan may not be allowed to go to the school dance but Ms. Marvel is… or at least that's the plan as she crashes it in her attempts to capture Asgard's most annoying trickster (and Marvel's favourite charlatan), Loki!

by Hanif Kureishi
An inventive, thought-provoking and characteristically bold collection of short fiction and essays from Hanif Kureishi, centred around the vexed relationship between love and hate. Exploring topics such as growing up and growing old; betrayal and loyalty; imagination and repression; and marriage and fatherhood.

An unflinching portrayal of a once-loving relationship in freefall. Cindy and David meet and fall passionately in love, but over time boredom and disenchantment come to the fore as they fumble their way through the emotional vacuum of their humdrum lives, looking helplessly back to the days when life still seemed filled with excitement and romance.

by Fiona Walker
Jenny loves to house-sit: looking after a stranger's enviably perfect home and pretending to be someone else - just for a bit. Her latest booking is a beautiful, dishevelled old rectory, hiding family skeletons in the closets. But then a seductive new friendship offers her a surprise second chance to open herself up to love again and finally live life on her own terms.
