de Mandy Len Catron
Sobre o livro
In 2014, 33-year- old Mandy Len Catron went on a date with an acquaintance. They decided to try an experiment: inspired by a study designed to create romantic feelings, Mandy and Mark spent the evening asking each other 36 increasingly intimate questions, wondering if it would lead to them falling in love.
InHow to Fall in Love with Anyone, this experiment is Catrons starting point for investigating what it means to love someone and to be loved, and how we present our love to the world. What makes love last? Can love ever work the way it seems to in films, books and social media? Is there a right way to fall in love?
In these candid, charming and wise essays, Catron blends memoir with cultural and social commentary on the psychology, biology, history and literature of love.How to Fall in Love with Anyone is a deeply personal, yet universal investigation into the one thing we all wantor think we wantmore than anything.
