5 Love Stories Told in an Unconventional Way
Revisiting some books, old and new and some ideas for summer beach reading.
1.Schematics: a Love Story, Julian Hibbard
Geometry and graphs to explain love “this book probes at how elemental and enormous love can feel”
2. Important Artifacts and Personal Property From the Collection of Lenore Doolan and Harold Morris, Including Books, Street Fashion, and Jewelry, Leanne Shapton
The book explores a failed love affair and the involvement of a whole string of items for the sentimental where one gets a sense of voyeurism sifting through it all.
3.The Lover’s Dictionary, David Levithan
“Just like it sounds, this is a sweet love story told in dictionary form, jumping around temporally, each entry anything from a phrase to a short story in and of itself, defining words in the only context that matters — the narrator’s relationship with his lover.”
4. Griffin & Sabine: An Extraordinary Correspondence, Nick Bantock
“A kind of adult pop up book with stories. “a romance between two artists who have never met, rendered in a series of removable, fondable, foldable letters and postcards.”
5.Love is a Mixtape: Life and Loss, One Song at a Time, Rob Sheffield
“In Sheffield’s heartbreaking tale, he uses the universal medium — mixtapes — to tell the story of the love of his life, their years together, and her death. And really, how better to explain?”
